As parents, we constantly worry about our children. I think it’s fair to say that we spend more time thinking about the safety of our kids than anything else. Even if you’re at work at the back of your mind, you’re thinking about whether your children are okay at school. Or, if they got home okay. But what about when they are in the house? Are they safe or are there some dangers being completely overlooked.
Woes With Water
Believe it or not, the water that your kids are drinking could be dangerous. Research has shown that tap water can contain alarming amounts of fluoride. This is the chemical found in toothpaste that helps keep your teeth clean. It has also been linked to low IQ and even brain tumors if consumed. I think this is one of the best reasons to get a water filter for your home.
Old Houses, Hidden Dangers
Is your home quite old? There are still thousands of homes across America with lead paint on the walls. Lead paint isn’t that dangerous for adults but for children the smallest amount can be deadly. It’s not the only danger that could be present in an older home either. Parents should also check if their house has asbestos. Asbestos has been released with several forms of cancer and was once used for insulation.
By not protecting your home from the threat of a break in you are essentially leaving the door wide open for thieves. You need to make sure it is securely shut with plenty of security features in place. One of the best security features you can use is CCTV. This will act as a deterrent and can have a massive impact on whether a break in even happens.
