The blog / website www.bestparentingskills.com published a very good article that outlined 12 safety devices that parents and homeowners can put in place to prevent many of these unfortunate and some times tragic incidents / injuries from taking place. See 12 Safety Devices to Protect Your Children. The safety devices mentioned were as follows:

*Safety latches and locks;

*Smoke detectors;

*Window guards and safety netting;

*Corner and edge bumpers;

Many of the above devices are inexpensive and easy to install. By taking a little bit of time and money, a child’s life can be saved and personal injuries can be avoided. Parents, homeowners, schools, and day care centers should take all reasonable precautions and measures to act in the best interests of children.
