Flat screen televisions are light weight compared to the older box models, but they still pose a serious threat of injury to children. Your little explorer is not equipped to think of the dangers if they decide to climb on the piece of furniture where your television is placed. They may be reaching for what they see on the screen or accidentally bump into it while playing and exploring. That television can fall with the force of a thousand pounds, causing serious head and internal injuries which can be fatal. Toddlers and small children are no match for the weight and force of a TV tipping over.
Did you know that every 23 minutes a child is treated at an emergency room for injuries sustained from tipping televisions and furniture? According to Health Canada, more than 70% of injuries caused by tipping televisions and furniture happened to children between 1 and 3 years of age.
These are horrifying statistics and can be prevented with a little knowledge and taking a few moments to secure televisions and furniture. There is never a substitute for supervising your children, but we both know how quick toddlers can get into mischief.
All televisions in your home should be secured. The KidCo Anti-Tip TV Straps install quickly. Each package contains two straps and an assortment of screws to fit most televisions. With one end of the strap secured to the television, the other can be mounted to the wall or secured to the back of the furniture piece that houses your television.
Any home where your child will be spending a lot of time should be evaluated and childproofed. Learning to be a parent while being a parent is a monumental responsibility to say the least. You love them, teach them right from wrong, and sit back and watch their little personalities develop bringing unending joy to your heart. So take a few moments and ensure their safety.
