6 Points Of Danger
A child sees medicine and thinks that it's candy. If they eat too much, they could die.
How to stop it: Store all medicines out of reach and sight, read product labels to find out what can be hazardous, and store all poisonious items out of reach.
Parent might not cut a food (grapes, hot dogs, sausages, etc) small enough and the child may choke.
How to stop it: Don't let children run with food in their mouth and read labels carefully to determine chocking risks.
Make sure refrigerator magnets are out of reach and check toys frequently for loose or broken parts.
A parent might be in a hurry for work and forget the child is in the car and the car can get over heated by the sun shining in. Children are often playing in the driveway where parents may not see them while backing up. Children riding in a car could fly through the the window in an accident.
How to stop it: Wear seat belts for every ride, kids under 13 should not ride in the front seat, and walk in front of the bus and far out so they can see you. Know where you children are when backing out of the driveway. Take your shoe off and place next to your child in the car. When you get to work and you don't have your shoe on, you will remember it's in the back seat with your child. This will help you not to forget your child is still in the car.
