When we think of things that are dangerous to children, generally things like strollers or cribs come to mind. But products designed for adults pose a dangers to little ones as well. I stumbled on this tragic story about unstable furniture, like dressers, cabinets, and chests, that can tip over and pin children down, often with disastrous consequences.
What does this mean to you:
As parents, we can’t assume that only “kids products” pose dangers to kids. To anticipate what children might get into, we have to to think like they would and approach common situations as they would. Come to think of it, that might not be a bad way to approach life anyway for purposes of our health, business success, and mental acuity.
