When your child begins to crawl and climb, the whole home turns into an exciting adventure land. But, since the toddler doesn’t have any risk awareness, the home environment can hold some hazards, for example furniture that can tip over. Sometimes it can be difficult to see the risks at home where everything is familiar. Here we unravel some common myths and misconceptions that explain why not all chests of drawers have been secured to the wall.

People are injured in these kinds of accidents every year. There’s no reason to risk the family’s safety.
