How to Keep Your Child Safe at Home

As a parent, you have a goal. You would like to keep your child safe at all times. If in case you sense any danger, you will do your best to remove your child from that situation. What if the danger can occur right at your own home?

Your home may be adult-friendly but it does not mean that it will be child-friendly too. Take a look at your furniture and your appliances at home. Do they pose a threat to your child? If you answer yes, then you know what to do: you need to make some changes at home that will make it more conducive for your child to live in.

  • Always check if your home security is 100% safe. You can hire locksmiths that will ensure that your lock is working properly.
  • Have the right items at home that will protect you if in case an intruder enters. It is not very likely for thieves to enter homes when the family is in there but what if it still happens? You need to have the right materials to protect yourself. Equip yourself with a taser. You can find taser gun for sale online and in brick and mortar stores. An electric stun gun will also be very helpful. Using it will allow you to have enough time to contact the authorities.
  • Install security cameras around the house. You may hire a nanny when you are not around. You can keep track of your nanny to make sure that she is doing what she is supposed to do with a nanny camera. You cannot just leave your child with someone that you do not know even if her credentials seem to be trustworthy.

Make sure that you have expandable batons for sale that will make your home safer in general for your child. Have plug covers to lessen the chances of electrocution. You can also add some corner cushions to lessen the sharp edges around the house.

Change of menu

The kids are requesting a different set of menu. Even if they don’t say it, I’m aware that they are sick of what I prepare for them every day. I wasn’t able to plan the dishes lately because of an on and off sickness. I only cook the dish based on the available ingredients in the fridge. Sometimes we only buy cooked viands for lunch and dinner. Hubby decided that he would do the market for now so that we can cook a decent meal. He also plans to look for a good stanton cd players on top of the market list that I gave him.

Those cute bento boxes I want to make for my big kids

I’m starting to get really interested in those colorful and yummy bento boxes. I’ve been reading a lot about them and seeing friends post their creatively crafted piece of art in a lunch box. I’m not sure if I’m ready to jump in the bento bandwagon though, but I’m willing to try anyway.

I’m thinking of ways to make my boy, the younger of two kids, eat as much as he should. He’s still a picky eater at his age and who knows preparing a bento lunch box could just solve the problem and encourage him to eat more without leaving half of his (boring) lunch box untouched.

But, first things first, where to get my bento box supply? I wish I can find a one-stop shop for bento boxes tools and accessories this weekend.

For now, I’m feasting my eyes on websites that discuss quick tips and tricks on making bento lunch boxes for kids and grown up. I’ve bookmarked everything for future reference.
