Worrying is second nature to someone who struggles with Anxiety. Add children into the mix and that worry is magnified. Many concerns about our children are largely out of our control but when it comes to safety in and around the home there is some action we can take to help prevent accidents.
I’ve teamed up with Max6Mum Security today to share a new campaign they are working on specifically around window safety. I’ll confess that window safety isn’t something I’ve given much thought to in the past, except when it comes to blind cords etc but, unfortunately, figures show around 4,000 children under 15 years old fall from windows each year in the UK.
As well as at home, showing this video or sharing the book in schools would be really useful too. Even 30 years on I still remember when the police officer visited our school to talk about road safety so clearly, if delivered correctly, this information can stick with our kids for a long time.
This window safety campaign is actually just the first in a series from Max6mum, with future episodes featuring additional child safety concerns such as answering the door to strangers, playing with cleaning products and internet safety.
