It is important to read to children already from birth. The time before children can talk themselves, is the most important time for language development. Thanks to being read to early in life, children get to hear more words, varying texts and experience dialogue inspired by books. Research shows that the age of the child when you start to read to him or her is of great importance for the child’s later language skills. During the children’s two first years of life, the brain, and especially the language centre, is growing a lot. This means that the child is more receptive to developing its language.

Even the packaging the toy comes in can be dangerous! Remove packaging, prize tags and other things and discard packaging immediately before giving the toy to the child. Make sure your child do not play with plastic packaging as it could be a risk of suffocation.

Small children love to open drawers and cupboards to find out was is hidden there. As a parent you will discover that your child will endlessly open drawers and cupboards pull out everything tucked away inside and examine and play with it. To secure and put safety locks on drawers and cupboards are important to eliminate accidents so your child can’t get in reach of something that is dangerous for him/her and small fingers can also get trapped in the cupboards doors or drawers.
By restraining children in age and size-appropriate car seats, booster seats and seat belts reduces the risk of serious and fatal injuries.
Children explore their surroundings with great curiosity, unaware of all the risk that exist around them. Children are often absorbed in their own immediate interests they can be oblivious to their surroundings. They only have a limited perception of the environment because of their lack of experience and development. They are not aware of the consequences of the many new situations that they encounter daily. For this reason, you as an adult need to keep a step ahead, in order to prevent accidents. The best thing you can do is always to keep an eye on them
