How To Explain Danger And Home Safety To Young Children
You want to be able to walk over and say, "No, no, not for babies. Danger",
Baby proofing and discipline really crossover with each other. As a new parent you need to explain danger and safety to your child when you are in the kitchen " hot hot", "no touching", "not for baby". When explaining danger and safety, use a vernacular that you are comfortable with, but stick to it, and let your child care provider know the language that you choose for explaining danger and safety. Also tell your husband, so you're all using the same language. If you go over to an outlet cupboard and you see your baby playing with it, let them know that it's a safety risk, "no no, not for babies, danger". Even if they're tiny, you will be saying "no no not for babies, danger" probably hundreds of times before they understand the safety risk. So you have to also ensure that child care devices are installed to slow your child down. To give you the time to get there, pull them away from the danger and at the same time explain that it is dangerous. You don't want to give your child time to sit there with a locked cabinet, for example. To figure out explaining home safety and danger right? You want to be able to walk over and say, "no no this isn't for you," and pull them away.
