Childproofing Your Accommodations on  Holidays We all know that our own home is safe for our children, but what about other locations we may be visiting during our holidays? There are never any guarantees at any other location that the room is safe for our youngsters. Here are some tips to making sure everyone enjoys a safe and enjoyable holiday. Once you arrive at your destination, it’s important to take the time to childproof as soon as possible. Remove chocolates or candies (left by those devoted staff members) from pillows to avoid messes and even choking hazards. A quick look around the room will allow you to take notice of items such as telephone cords, blind cords or other hazards you will need to secure or readjust so your child doesn’t get injured. Check for glass and any other breakables and put them out of reach. You could also ask for these items to be removed from the room. Check windows to ensure they are locked and secure, especially if you are not at ground level. Balconies can also pose a danger for all young children, so make sure access is not available. You can even tell your older children they aren’t allowed on the balcony without close adult supervision. The next step is to grab that roll of duct tape (it really can be used for everything you know) out of your baggage, and cover up all accessible sockets. Not all outlets are compatible with the covers you can purchase at the store near your www.midstayparking.co.uk


home, and duct tape is the next best thing. Just remember to remove the tape before leaving. If your accommodations include access to a pool, water safety should be taken very seriously. Set ground rules for your own children as to what is and isn’t appropriate behavior in the water. If there is a “kids club” ask about adult to child ratios, and never let your older children in the pool without supervision, even if they are strong swimmers. With safety measures in place, enjoy your holiday! Your Holiday Travel and parking Guide: 1. 2.
