A new Window Coverings Safety Council (WCSC) study suggests that 24% of surveyed Americans are not aware of interior blind cords safety hazards, and 15% still are unaware of strangulation hazards related to window covering pull cords. As parents of beloved children, the team at http://www.SelectBlinds.com wants to promote safety this Valentine's Day by sharing some top window blinds and shades safety tips.
Hand in hand with the gift of parenthood comes the desire to keep your little ones safe and protected. Valentine's Day is the day of love, and my kids are used to a fun day with special gifts of appreciation from their parents. But one year ago today, I had a scare that I would never want to happen to anyone else. While playing with her new toys at my mother in law's house, my toddler's neck became entangled by the pull cord on their window blinds. I followed into the room to check on her and saw her caught in the cord with half her body hanging off of the back of the couch. I quickly released her, and after a few minutes of snuggling and juice drinking, she ran off to play again, with a small cord burn on part of her neck. I was lucky...I came into the room and found her before she fell off the couch. Today, I am reminded of my scare again, and for this reason, I want to share some safety tips provided by the Window Covering Safety Council.
First of all, there were a lot of things that were hazards in my in-law's house. Starting with the #1 tip:
