As a parent, one of your main duties is to ensure the ongoing safety of your family at all times. This can be much easier said than done, however, particularly when your children are young enough not to know how to look after their own safety. What’s more, modern families leading hectic busy lives might well be excused for not always knowing exactly how to look after each other at all times. But the truth is, you need to be able to keep one eye on the subject of health and safety, no matter what you are doing or who with.

Hopefully, long before your children arrived into the world, you already baby-proofed everything. As they get older, some of these measures will become less necessary – but in other regards, some will become even more necessary. At all times, make sure that your children cannot obviously harm themselves. Be careful with what you leave lying around, and always think from their perspective – what can they reach, what can they get into? This should help you to keep everyone safe.
