Putting soft pads on sharp corners, blocking off stair wells with child gates, covering plugs with plastic blanks, installing outdoor gates and of course locking drawers and cupboards containing potentially harmful items are all common prepping activities.
If you live in a different town or city than your grandchildren then there may be significant time between visits. All that safety gear is redundant whilst the child isn't around and quite frankly, it becomes annoying and an eye-sore to the adults living in the home.
Dismantling or putting the gear away and reinstalling it for each visit is impractical, especially if the family is growing and more grandchildren are due. As a result, the kit could be left in place for a number of years, totally affecting the way the adults use their home.ADVERTISER'S WEBSITE
