If family or friends with young children will be visiting this holiday season, carve out time beforehand to go through this quick list of kid-friendly cautions and precautions. Peace of mind will lower everyone's stress level and make for a merrier time.
Put yourself in a child's shoes. At the restaurant chain T.G.I. Friday's, managers are required to sit in every seat and survey the room once a week to get the customer's point of view. Make it your policy to get down on all fours and evaluate your home from a young guest's perspective. While you're down there, note and relocate all cleaning products, vitamins, medicines, matches, lighters, and other potentially harmful items; scan for perfume, hair products, shoe polish, nail polish, and polish remover. Discard toxic houseplants like rhododendron, English ivy, lily of the valley, holly, and mistletoe.
