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.
