Is Your Child Safe When Doing Chores?


Monday’s Parenting Thought
When a child is doing a chore on his own, be sure he, others, and property are safe.
For example:
  1. If putting toys away is a chore, make sure the places he is to put them are not so high that it encourages
    unsafe climbing.
  2. Make sure toy shelves are well anchored and are not likely to fall over from the weight of toys being put away.
  3. Make sure electrical cords aren’t in the way of what the child is trying to do.
  4. Consider that children may spill or drop things while doing tasks. Make sure your best things are not nearby.
