Play It Safe This Summer: Window Safety

Jake, at Time after Time, has a Sunday Post Challenge. The theme this week is WINDOW.

Sunday Post: Window...Play it Safe This Summer

STAY-TUNED FOR THE WINNER OF THE CHILDREN’S BOOK WEEK GIVEAWAY!

Do your kids like to look out the window? When my children were small, they loved watching birds fly from branch to branch and cars zoom down the road. A rainy day offered an under-the-sea look at the world while wintery frost created beautiful patterns on the window pane.

But windows can be dangerous! Summer is around the corner and the temperature will be rising. 

Before you open those windows, please check these window safety tips.   Did you know that over 4000 children are injured and wind up in the emergency room every year and about a dozen die from window falls?

HERE ARE A FEW DO’S AND DON’TS OF WINDOW SAFETY FOR KIDS

  •   DON’T allow your children to play around windows, even if they are closed, since they can be hurt if they fall through the glass of a closed window

  • DON’T rely on screens to keep your kids from falling
  • DO consider installing landscaping under windows that might cushion a fall
  • DO install windows that can open from the top, instead of the bottom, if possible
  • DO keep furniture away from windows, so that your children aren’t tempted to climb on them
  • DO teach your children about window safety

Keeping young kids happy, engaged and busy during the summer months can be a challenge. Going to museums, zoos and the library are great fun! But you can have fun at home!

Sunday Post: Window...Play It Safe this summer

1.     Show Me How! Build Your Child’s Self-Esteem Through Reading, Crafting and Cooking is a one-stop guide and activity book. 

2.     Using it this summer will help prepare the younger ones for preschool and kindergarten

3.     Six and seven year olds will love the craft projects and cooking activities and may be able to read some of the stories themselves

4.     This will help to prevent the academic slide that often occurs during the summer months.

5.     Lined sections on every other page provide a place for notes or comments…the book can become a journal of your child’s progress and activities.
