Whether you have little ones of your own or if the time you spend around kids is reserved for babysitting, itโ€™s vital to be on your toes when it comes to safety.

Children are not always well-known for making good judgement calls and they can get pretty crazy too.

Thatโ€™s why itโ€™s up to you to ensure they are safe while they play, bathe and eat.

Understanding the potential dangers can go a long way toward making sure the kids in your care are as safe as possible.

Make sure to keep these things away from your kids.

1. Detergent Pods Look like Candy, but They Can Be Deadly

Detergent pods are all over store shelves and are a super convenient way to get your clothes clean.

However, they look like candy to lots of kids.

After all, they are brightly colored pods that look perfect for licking or chewing on.

The truth is that they can kill little kids if they are eaten so make sure they are stored completely out of reach.

2. Immersion Blenders Are a Recipe for Disaster

I love my immersion blender!

Itโ€™s perfect for making creamy soups, whipping mashed potatoes and making homemade refried beans.

As great at is, it also poses an injury risk to my children.

The blades on the blender are very sharp and can cause devastating cuts and lacerations so make sure you tell your kids that itโ€™s not a toy and then store it where your little ones canโ€™t reach it.

3. The Television Isnโ€™t as Safe as You Might Think

Iโ€™m not talking about too much screen time here, though thatโ€™s something you need to consider for other reasons.

According to the experts at Parents magazine, a child is injured by a television every 30 minutes.3

Thatโ€™s usually because the TV tips over and falls on the child.

Use furniture anchors to keep yours stable โ€“ even if junior decides to climb the entertainment center.
