My kids are 7 and 3, so they are finally getting to the age where I dont have to "child proof" my house, as much...
These days its mostly my 3 year old who I worry about. He is much more mischievous, he likes to get into things, climb on things, take stuff apart....
Child proofing your home not only keeps your kids safe, but it can also help keep you sane!
Look how cute my boy is! He loves to climb... This bookshelf is in his room and its mounted to the wall so if he tries to climb it, it wont tip over on him (some of the "unseen" child proofing techniques are the most essential).
There is a much taller bookshelf in my daughter's room, whit lots of heavy books on the top shelf! This one is also mounted to the wall. Although she knows not to climb it (I think) its better safe than sorry! Also in the event of an earthquake, it wont fall over.
This is the best gate I ever bought!! It fits large openings, is taller than the average gate, there are not holes for kids to try to climb over it and.... (see next picture)
