|Five Steps to Potty Safety|
You have most likely gotten used to how quickly accidents can happen with children. The bathroom is no different, now lets look at five steps you should follow for potty safety.
1. Dont leave your child unattended.
I think this goes without saying, plus there are state and local laws covering this! Okay, Im just kidding. But, you dont want to leave your child unattended because you dont want him to get hurt. Its as simple as that. Keep an eye on your child to prevent accidents before they occur.
2. Make sure the step stool is secure.
You wouldnt want to step on a shaky ladder, now would you? So dont expect your child to step on a shaky stool. Its best to try to avoid accidents before they can happen. Just imagine if your child slipped and fell off of the step stool. Ouch, or worst!
3. Dont leave appliances plugged in.
Your child may pull them in the toilet. Lets see if you dont follow this safety rule, then you run the risk of electrocution and death or electrocution and hospitalization. All electrical equipment should be kept out of a childs way, period. It doesnt matter if its in the bathroom or dining room.
4. Make sure the training cushion is secure on the toilet.
Okay, if the step stool needs to be secure and the electrical appliances need to be put up, and then is this safety step far fetched? Please make sure the training cushion is always locked down and secure. Why, your child could fall into the toilet!
5. Make sure all of your potty tools are child safety approved.
Theres a federally funded agency that youve more than likely heard of. Its called the Consumer Product Safety Commission. They put out reports almost daily about unsafe products that we buy. I learned to look for their warning signs in stores. You can usually find the warnings in the customer service areas. You can also find them on the web at www.consumer.gov/productsafety.htm
