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.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
