Are Keys Dangerous in the Hands of Kids10/24/2013 Back To Blog
What makes kids great is their curiosity! At a young age, they are eager to find out anything possible about the world surrounding them by tasting, touching and feeling things around them. Their senses lead them and they will definitely be intrigued by the “don'ts” of mom and dad. On the other hand, we keep so many things in the house we can't really trust that they are all innocent and harmless for the children's wellbeing. Your transponder key may be of great use to you, but it could create unexpected problems to your three years old daughter. On the other hand, you could use keys to prevent problems and possible accidents.
The unseen threats
Tiny things like the ignition car key can be a threat to your child because it could swallow it. Some kids would also take their chance to try out their driving skills and, consequently, accidents are almost unavoidable. Are your kids playful and naughty? You may laugh with their little games, but when you cannot find your keys, you will certainly get angry. The lost house keys could create many troubles and even lock you in the property for long. You just need to remember that keys are not toys and they can be dangerous to the hands of kids. Don't forget that they could unlock the door and step away from the house without you noticing it.
Use keys for your sake and their benefit
You must make it a habit to hide the keys of the house in a place unreachable by small kids and never leave the car keys on plain sight. On the contrary, you must use the power of keys for the benefit of your family and the complete protection of your kids. Don't forget that keys have the purpose of locking things away and that's exactly what you should do. You should use the cabinet locks to hide all dangerous things and substances, so that your kids won't come in contact with them, but you must make sure you'll hide well the keys. At the same time, it would be prudent to do key change once in a while because kids will never stop searching for the keys leading to the forbidden cabinets.
