Child Safety: 8 Things ER Doctors Do Not Have in Their Homes by Ann Marie Gardinier Halstead
Parents may have different parenting styles, but we all have one thing in common: we want to keep our kids safe and healthy. My own mom, one of my parenting role models, has told me for years that her daily prayer has always been, “God, please keep my kids healthy and safe.” This is still her prayer, though my siblings and I are now in our 30s and 40s (and now she includes her grandkids).
This universal parenting focus on health and safety had me wondering what we can control (because we all know that so much is out of our control, as much as we may hate that!). Hence, my research took me on a journey to find out what ER physicians advise, given all the injuries and tragedies they witness on a daily basis. Here are eight things that ER doctors do not have in their own homes:
- button batteries
- swimming pools
- power washers and extension ladders
- Ramen noodle soups
- old pain pills
- high chairs that pull up to the table
