Health Tip: Childproof Your Home

(HealthDay News) -- Childproofing a home is important even after your little one reaches toddlerhood.

KidsHealth.org offers these suggestions to make your home safer for kids of all ages:

  • Keep guns locked in a sturdy cabinet.

  • Keep coin lithium ("button") batteries out of a child's reach. They may be deadly if swallowed.

  • Keep choking hazards, poisonous substances, hot and sharp items out of reach.

  • Have a child use safety glasses if involved in activities such as woodworking, science experiments involving chemicals, racquetball or paintball.

  • Never leave young kids unattended in a bath.
