How safe are you windows?
Use this quick list to make sure your little ones aren’t at risk. The best thing you can do is install cordless shade styles in your home, especially in children’s bedrooms and playrooms, but if you have existing shades in your home that you’re not looking to replace anytime soon, consider the following:
1) Make sure continuous loop cords on your window shades aren’t slack and that they are firmly anchored to the wall or windowsill
2) Lock cords into position when shades are lowered
3) Move cribs and small children’s beds to walls without windows
4) Move low furniture, such as chairs, toy bins, bookshelves and low couches away from windows so toddlers can’t reach window cords.
5) Cut existing tassle-style cords short so they are out of reach for children
