How to Keep Your Kids Safer in the Home

 Keeping your kids safe is going to be a top priority as a parent. There can be all kinds of dangers and threats in the home if you’re not careful. So today we’re going to talk today about keeping your kids safer in the home. A few small changes and paying closer attention to the dangers that exist in your home can make all the difference. So read on and find out more.


Maintain Functional Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors


Maintaining functional smoke and carbon monoxide detectors throughout the home is something that’s obviously going to be very important indeed. When you have children, you start to realize even more just how important those kinds of precautions are. So test these detectors on a regular basis and make sure you’re replacing the old batteries regularly as well.


Don’t Leave Pan Handles Hanging Over the Hob’s Edge


When you’re cooking in the kitchen and you have young children walking around and grabbing at things, you need to be very careful. You’ll want to make sure that you never leave pan handles full of hot food or water hanging over the edge of the hob. If your child is big enough to grab at them and potentially pull them off, they could get seriously burnt.

Use Stair Gates


For young children that aren’t yet steady on their feet and able to walk alone, it’s important to think about using a stair gate. These allow you to have greater control over where your child is, and they won’t be able to run off and have a fall that might result in them tumbling down the stairs. These stair gates are very easy to install, so you should put them in place if you haven’t done so already.


Keep Dangerous Items Locked Up and Out of Reach


Of course, you also need to think about the way in which you keep certain items away from the children. Things like alcohol and marijuana should be kept away from them and locked up. You can use preroll packaging to carry rolled cigarettes in a child-safe container. Anything that’s dangerous in the hands of a child should be locked away and kept well out of reach.


Lock the Windows


Locking the windows is another thing you should take more care to do. Simply closing them but leaving them unlocked could be dangerous if your child climbs up there and opens them. So keep them locked at all times, unless you’re going to be around and supervising carefully. You should also make sure that the key to the window is hidden away somewhere so that your child won’t be able to find it too.


As you can see, there are lots of ways in which you can make your home safer; the ideas above will help you to start making the right kinds of changes. Nothing matters more than safety in the home, especially when you have young children to think about and protect from day to day.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
