Are Your Windows Safe Enough for the Little Ones?

Safety is a concern for everyone, especially for people with young children. The following tips will help make your home – and particularly your windows – safer for children:

  • Use window guards on all windows above the first floor. Screens aren’t strong enough to stop a fall; they are meant to keep insects out, not to keep children in. Look for quick-release features for easy emergency exits.
  • If it’s necessary to keep windows open for ventilation, install locks that limit the size of the opening.
  • For sliding glass doors, apply bright stickers at a child’s eye level to alert him or her to the presence of glass.
  • Keep all furniture and cribs away from windows.

For your window coverings consider cordless options which are ideal for homes with young children, or products that make the window covering cords inaccessible and unable to form a hazardous loop.
