Keep Objects Away from Windows: If there is one thing small children love to do, its bang things against each other. From toy hammers and spoons to rattles and pots and pans, a child can find bliss in hitting things. One thing you don’t want them hitting, however, is a window. Though a child might not appear to have the strength to break a window, if the window is old or single paned, it will break with much less force than you think. Help make this unlikely by keeping objects such as baseballs and golf clubs away from windows.
Don’t Leave Windows Inviting to Children: Just as children are taught that a stove is potentially dangerous or to stay away from matches, they should also be taught that windows can be trouble. This doesn’t mean they need to be scarred for life or turned into adults afraid of glass, but they should know that windows aren’t anything to play with or around. Along these lines, toys or other items appealing to children shouldn’t be left on windowsills. As children reach for these things, an accident could be caused.
Windows may appear as one of the most unthreatening things to a child’s safety, but this isn’t always the case. In the end, it’s better to “screen” this part of your house for safety issues.
