Protecting Your Child From Falling Furniture
Parents go to great lengths to protect their children when they head out of the home to keep them safe from just about everything they can think of. From cell phones to child locator devices these parents can easily protect their child even if they cannot be there. Yet many times they forget about the dangers right in their own homes. The news recently has focused on toddlers and television sets placed on tall seemingly stable furniture. In a flash a young child can pull drawers out of a bureau or try and climb a entertainment center and end up pulling the piece and the television on top down on themselves. To prevent these children from getting hurt parents should anchor these pieces to the wall in order to ensure they cannot topple over.
