Four Things Toddlers Shouldn't Do
- Unload the dishwasher. He may love to help Mommy with those racks of dishes and glasses, but an unsteady toddler can easily fall on or bump into sharp objects inside.
- Eat while walking. Kids 2 and under are at particular risk for choking. Always have your child stay seated until she's done with her food.
- Help spray furniture polish or other cleaners. He could easily get them into his eyes or mouth.
- Plug or unplug an electrical cord. While a toddler could do this with supervision, it's best to have a clear rule that she should always stay away from outlets.
