HOME SAFETY TIPS FOR<br />

PARENTS


As a Pineville Pediatrics, safeguarding<br />

children at home is a paramount concern.<br />

From curious toddlers to adventurous<br />

preschoolers, little ones are susceptible to<br />

accidents and injuries in their own<br />

surroundings.


However, with the right precautions and<br />

awareness, parents can establish a safe<br />

and secure home environment <strong>for</strong> their<br />

children. Here are some expert Pineville<br />

Pediatrics home safety tips to assist<br />

parents in shielding their little ones.


Pineville Pediatrics advise that in the bedroom<br />

you should make sure that cribs and beds are<br />

devoid of potential hazards such as loose bedding,<br />

pillows and stuffed animals.


In the kitchen, take precautions to prevent burns and<br />

scalds by using stove knob covers, keeping hot<br />

beverages and foods out of reach, and utilizing the<br />

back burners when cooking. Store sharp objects<br />

such as knives and scissors in locked drawers or<br />

high cabinets to prevent accidental cuts and injuries.


If your child comes into contact with any medicines,<br />

you should immediately tell your Ballantyne<br />

<strong>Pediatrician</strong>. Never leave young children<br />

unattended in the bath, even <strong>for</strong> a moment.


Regularly review and update safety measures as<br />

children grow and develop new skills. Educate<br />

children about potential hazards and teach them<br />

basic safety rules such as looking both ways be<strong>for</strong>e<br />

crossing the street and wearing helmets when<br />

riding bicycles.


As a Ballantyne <strong>Pediatrician</strong>, I urge parents to<br />

prioritize home safety to protect their little ones<br />

from accidents and injuries.
