Parenting, nobody really knows exactly what to do every step of the way. We learn as we go hope that we get it right. There are books and other forms of descriptive guidance that we read, memorize, and implement. Hoping that we don’t completely mess up our precious children. We protect them with baby gates, plug covers, door knob contraptions, etc. Hoping we can protect them from everything. Is this possible?
Day in and day out we take these tedious steps to provide top notch safety for our children. It may ease your mind knowing that you have taken the appropriate steps to provide some safety for your loved one. Yes, SOME! Hazards are everywhere! You know that fan? The one in the living room.

Think again, as a parent I know keeping an eye on your little bundles 24/7 is an impossible job. Especially if you have multiple adventurous young children. What if I just can’t dedicate this kind of time? (single mom/dad, doing housework, etc.) How can I make sure they are safe? Create a space just for them…
Provide a room, if available, just for them! No hazards around! No dressers, TV’s, etc. This is helpful if you have toddlers or older children. This gives them an area to “control” which gives them the chance to be independent. *Side note: Independence in a child’s life is a contributing factor to their development. So not only are you protecting your children from harm (creating a space), you’re also providing good well-being.
After your all tuckered out from providing them this space let your hard work pay off. Stick them little sugar-filled-drive-ya-crazy children in their space. Sit back and enjoy the
Hope this helps! Enjoy the read as always!! Thanks for stopping by….till next time.
