Always keeping in mind the previous guides to avoid dangers for our child, we now face the issue of children who have become a little older. After three years children are perfectly able to understand what is dangerous and what is not.
However, there is a willingness in them to know and experiment continuously, so it is important to explain to them well what and how many dangers they may incur not being careful. Gradually you can grant them more and more autonomy but control them discreetly while they play and always try to prevent dangerous situations.
Your child grows up quickly and gains autonomy, but you must always explain to him in a clear way what are the dangerous situations.
- Never leave matches and lighters or anything else that is dangerous to children.
- Do not allow the child to play with alcohol or flammable liquids.
- Keep all dangerous liquids away from the child’s reach.
- Keep safe, locked in a room all objects that could be dangerous to the child or be used dangerously: like weapons or knives.
