Watch the Kids
Even if you don’t have your own—be vigilant when that little niece or nephew is around! Things that you wouldn’t do—like light matches, turn knobs on the stove, knock over pots and play with a lighter—all seem like games to the little ones. What’s more, Monica Bielanko from the blog Strollerderby notes that young children are more likely to sleep through a fire alarm than adults are. So watch them. You’re watching for two.
