Our children are definitely our most demanding projects. They are the ones that keep us alert and ongoing 24/7. Quite often when we lower our guard just a little bit to take a break our little angels find the way to take advantage of this and to combine some nasty surprise for us lucky parents. And this is great, this constant game of controlling and supervising and warning and so on. It is just that we parents are quite often well aware how there is no way we will manage to be in control all the times and how there is no way we will be able to predict each and every move our children make especially as they are getting older. And in fact this thing is terrifying for us since quite often we feel helpless in front of tons of possibilities and scary outcomes that we cannot directly influence nor protect our children from. Well this in fact is one of the main reasons we need to treat our children like small sensible people almost like small adults and talk to them as much as possible about potential dangers that are hiding within and outside our homes.
Warn your children about the garage doors
One place in your home that you might forget to cover in your serious long talks with your children is garage and garage doors. Quite often parents neglect these areas since they instantly associate them with grownups and grown up stuff. Unfortunately what they seem to neglect and forget quite often is that our children see us as their little heroes at least in those early ages thank god for that, and want to do just like we are. This for example may lead toward various accidents including garages and garage doors.
Very modern trend today is to convert garage in some sort of workshop or children playground. If you are deciding what new room your garage is going to be then go with the workshop since there are definitely much better places for your children to play. These may seem like apparently insignificant details but garage doors can actually lead toward terrible consequences. Compare the size of your garage door and weight with the size and weight of your child and you will need not one more reason to keep your child away from your garage!
