As our bundles of joy, our children are our world. When they cry, we cry. When they laugh, we laugh. They light up our world like no other.

They give us a meaning to live. And therefore, it’s no surprise that we want to protect them from a world of danger. We want to protect them from everything and anything that can cause them distress and harm.

So when you’re purchasing a new home or renovating your old one, you need to make sure your windows are childproof!

Now, it goes without saying that your child can’t reach windows that are too high. But that doesn’t mean it’s not dangerous.

Poorly-installed windows can put your child in a vulnerable position. But cracked windows aren’t the only bane of parents. If you live on the second floor of an apartment building, protecting your child becomes even more important.

But that shouldn’t stop your child from learning and developing!

Here’s how you can childproof your windows:

Childproof Window Locks

Unfortunately, children nowadays are cleverer than we were at their age! Your little munchkin may be able to open the fridge door or unlock the iPad on his/her own. But that doesn’t necessarily mean a good thing!

Childproof locks are the perfect way to stop your child from opening the window. There are different types of locks available but one that’s popular is the double-hung window lock.

Window Guards

Window guards are another innovative solution to safety problems! If you have a curious toddler in the house, window guards are the solution.

One of the best things about window guards is that they help set up a grill around the window panes. So basically, your child can’t reach the latch to open the window and escape.

Window Screens

Unfortunately, window screens aren’t enough to protect your toddler from falling through. But when you install window screens with window guards, it’s the perfect combination!

You can forget worrying about your child finding a way out because both screens and guards help lock the way to the latch. So your toddler won’t be able to open the lock no matter how many times he/she tries!

Window Blinds

Did you know there are childproof window blinds? Sounds surprising but it’s true! You can say goodbye to constantly following your child around and making sure they stay away from trouble.

Childproof window blinds are an ideal choice for parents because once you close the blinds; they won’t open no matter how hard you try. They can only be opened manually. The best part is that they don’t come equipped with a cord so you don’t have to worry about your child getting hurt while playing with the cord.

So you don’t need to worry about your child trying to open them by him/herself!

Other Things To Keep In Mind

One of the best ways to keep your child safe from harm is by educating them about the importance of safety from an early age. By the age of 3, kids start understanding what we tell them.

So educate your child about why they should stay away from windows. Also, try not to leave your child unattended.

Secondly, make sure your windows are properly installed, to avoid accidents. Poorly-installed windows lead to the glass cracking or shattering.
