It is important for you to give your toddler the freedom to be creative and push his/her limits. But it is equally crucial that you take necessary precautions when you have a little one to take care of.

All parents want to be confident that their children are safe and sound in their home. Today, we are going to discuss some window treatment tips that will let you rest easier knowing your kid is safe, no matter what his little fingers might get into.

Say Goodbye to Hanging Window Treatments for A While!

Drapes & Curtains

For homes with kids, drapes and curtains can probably be the worst choice. This is because children can get messy and wreak havoc on window fabrics. Hanging window treatments are hazardous to your kids. So, say goodbye to hanging window treatments to avoid having the curtain and the curtain rod come toppling down on your baby.

Child-proof Window Treatments? Go Cordless!

You must keep all cords out of children’s reach. A suggestion is to make them shorter.

If you haven’t already replaced your window coverings with cordless or motorized options, you must at least restrict cords with the help of cord cleats.
