Health Tip: Practice Window Safety

(HealthDay News) -- Curious toddlers are especially prone to crawling through and falling from windows, so it's best to practice these safety suggestions, courtesy of the Cleveland Clinic:

  • Be sure you can't open any window enough to allow a child to crawl through.

  • If your window locks require a key, store it nearby.

  • Never place furniture near a window. A child could climb the furniture and fall through the nearby window.

  • Don't assume that a screen will take the place of a window lock.

  • Board up or repair any broken or cracked glass.
