When a toddler is inhabiting a home with their caretaker(s), there is a need for security procedures to ensure they are as safe as possible at all times. It only takes a second for someone to look away and discover a toddler has wrangled their way outside of the home if security measures are not in place. In addition to a child getting out, there is also the risk of someone trying to get in. Security is a definite must when small children are present. Here are some tips that can be used to aid in toddler home safety.

Use A Baby Monitor To Track Your Toddler

There are times when a toddler will be a room on their own, such as in the bathroom or bedroom. While it is important to give a toddler some independence, there is also the risk of something happening when a caretaker is not around to keep a watchful eye on their actions. Keeping a baby monitor in these rooms is best for this reason. A security service will be able to recommend monitor options and one with sound and/or video can be selected to be sure a child is safe at all times.

Keep Identifying Information Away From Social Media

In this day and age, many people are involved in the posting of information on social media groups so they can share pictures and events with those they choose. It is extremely important to refrain from posting too much information.

Keep any information that could lead someone to a particular address off of social media. This can include:

  • House numbers
