Child Safety

What things in the house need to be childproofed?

Drawers and cabinets, both to prevent the child from getting possible dangerous things out of them, but to prevent them from pulling the items or drawers down on top of themselves. Anything that can tip over. Toilet seats can crack heads and break fingers. Electrical outlets should be sealed. I had a daughter cut her finger getting caught in the door of the VCR player. Poisons, cleaning supplies and medications have to be up high. Sharp corners on furnature, fireplaces can be dangerous. Refrigerators, freezers, washers and dryers.
