Having a child fall out of a window must be the nightmare of a parent. Unfortunately, it has happened too many times in the past. With a young child, a few minutes alone with an open window is an accident waiting to happen. While you, as a parent, probably wouldn’t ever do something that jeopardizes your child on purpose, a momentary distraction could spell disaster. Just to make sure that the worst doesn’t happen, take some precautions that will make it a lot less likely for your child to have such an accident.
You should make sure that the latches on your windows are either child proof or placed so that they can’t be easily reached. Make sure you lock the latches after the window has been opened, as well. Having a soft surface underneath windows will also be an added safety. Mulch and bushes strategically placed could be a salvation if there were to be an accidental fall.
