Everyone wants to keep their children safe from everything they can think of. In all honesty, in very many cases, parents tend to overprotect their children. However, with all this overprotection from bacteria, from falling when running, from eating dirt to pretty much anything else, there are some things parents really should protect their children from.
According to a new study that released just a week ago, every three weeks one child dies from a television tipping over. More than 13,000 more children are injured every year. Yet, most parents are not even considering TV tip-over as a threat to their small children. Many are also not even aware that there are ways to secure their television to their wall. However, it’s not as difficult as one might think.
Start by assessing the stability of your TV. Is it easy to knock over? Or if it’s not easy to just knock it over…what if someone tried to climb up with the help of the TV? If it’s destined to fall in these cases, it’s time to secure it. And securing it to the wall is usually your best bet.
