Charlie’s House is a not-for-profit organization helping parents, grandparents and caregivers make a home as safe and injury-free as possible for children. Born from a tragic accident and loss of a child, Charlie’s House is dedicated to keeping people informed and engaged when it comes to preventing injuries to children in and around the home.
The Charlie’s House website provides great home safety information for caregivers and you can even print off a checklist for your own home. I am happy to say my husband and I have screwed, bolted and secured our large furniture to the walls of our home in hopes of preventing harm to our son, but after reading through the checklist, I discovered hidden dangers that had completely slipped my mind.
This site is definitely worth a visit, and you should at least look through the safety checklist to see if your home has any hidden dangers. Any life spared is worth the read.
