Safety on a Budget with the Rainbow Safety Store
Raising children is definitely expensive. The good news is keeping your children safe doesn't have to break the bank. Rainbow offers the Safety Store as a convenient and cost effective way for parents to get important items. There are also plenty of free things parents can do to prevent unintentional injuries. Consider the following tips to get started:
- Keep an eye on your children at all times. This is the best way to keep children safe and it does not cost a penny.
- Keep poisonous items like medicines and cleaners locked away and out of reach of children.
- Do not let children play on stairs, furniture, balconies, roofs, streets or parking lots.
- Practice an escape plan with your family in case of a fire or other disaster.
- Cook on back burners and keep handles facing away from the front of the stove so curious children cannot pull hot contents down on themselves.
- Tape up any loose rugs firmly to the floor/carpet to avoid slips and slides of running toddlers.
