With a family, there are always safety concerns that we have for our children. There are so many things that are in our homes that can be very dangerous to our kids and even deadly for them. From the cleaning products that we lock up under the sink to the medications that are locked up in the medicine cabinet. I know that when I go through my home, I do look at things that my kids might get hurt by or that the baby could pull down on himself and it bothers me. I will block off those areas or monitor their play when they are near those items, so that my children can remain safe, but the concern remains. One thing that I know that most of us have in our homes, that we might not have secured in place is the television. Like many others, we have flat panel televisions in our home, but with their thin designs and such, it makes them easier for them to tip over or to be pulled over, which can be harmful or even deadly.
A 2011 US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) report on flat panel TV safety revealed:
· A child is killed every three weeks from an unsecured TV
· Every 45 minutes a child visits an emergency room due to a TV tip-over related injury
· Between 2000 and 2011, 215 fatalities have resulted from TV tip-over
· An estimated 17,000 people each year, the majority of which are children, are treated for injuries from TV tip-overs
· Reported cases have increased almost 25% from 2006 to 2010, and over the last 10 years, injuries have increased by 31%
Well, the people from Sanus are the leading designer and manufacturer in flat panel TV mounts, and they want to help bring these statistics down. So they have partnered with Safe Kids Worldwide by educating consumers on the risks and dangers and by offering safe solutions for families across the nation by reducing TV tip over related injuries and fatalities. To help secure the flat panel televisions in your home, the wonderful people from Sanus would like to give one of my amazing readers their own Sanus VuePoint F180 Large Full-Motion TV Wall Mount!

We keep all household cleaning supplies on top shelves in the laundry room.
Attaching dressers to a stud in the wall can prevent your child from tipping it over on themselves if they attempt to climb on the drawers.

Tie up cords from blinds on windows so children cannot reach them.
Never put sit in toys on raised surfaces, like bouncers or child seats on tables. They pose a fall risk, and if placed on a soft surface like a bed pose a suffocation risk.Thanks,Jayme H.
