Windows are 1 of the top 5 home hazards for kids, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Here’s how to make your windows child-safe:
- Cut off or tie up dangling cords on drapes and blinds.
- Mark sliding doors and expanses of glass with stickers.
- Make sure windows have locks so that they can be opened to allow air in but not so that a child could fall out.
- Never depend on screens to prevent a child from falling out of a window.
- Don’t put furniture that a child could climb on near windows.
- Keep windows closed and locked when you're not using them.
