Tools To Help Keep Your Kids Safe
In the latest 2010 U.S. Census data revealed that of all the close to 80 million families in the United States 55% of them had no children which means that 45% of all families did have children-that is close to 35 million families. In today’s article we are going to discuss various tools for you to help keep your children safe.
If there is any doubt in your mind about why you may need some help, all you need to do is look at the Center for Disease Control (CDC) statistics on Child Safety Data that shows that 12,000 children up to age 19 die from unintentional injuries every year and 9.2 million of them are treated in emergency rooms for nonfatal injuries.
“Unintentional injuries—such as those caused by burns, drowning, falls, poisoning and road traffic—are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality among children in the United States.”
Transportation related injuries were the leading cause of death for children, mostly when they were occupants of motor vehicles, but a substantial number of pedestrian and cycling deaths also occurred.
According to these Government Statistics drowning is the number one cause of death in children up to four years old with an average of close to 400 deaths annually. That is why any homeowner who has a pool and children should seriously consider getting our very effective Pool Alarm that sounds an alarm when entry in the pool is detected. When that happens a loud alarm inside the home sounds. The receiver which is inside the home can communicate up to 300 feet away to the sensor that is in the pool. It is battery-operated and operates wirelessly.
And for any parent who has ever temporarily “lost” a small child outdoors in a playground or indoors in a store there is no greater sense of panic.
Our Giggle Bug child safety alarm, as seen above, sounds an 85 dB siren even if your child is as much is 100 feet away. The alarm attaches to the parent’s key ring and the Giggle Bug attaches to the child’s clothing. Press a button and the alarm sounds making it easy to locate your child.
Another handy device is this 85 dB bathtub water level alert alarm that attaches to the side of the bathtub with a suction cup. The alarm sounds when water comes in contact with the device. It can help prevent accidental overflows in a tub or worse, an accidental drowning.
In our article ‘Child Abuse And How To Detect It’ we describe how common child abuse is and how difficult it is to detect.
One of the best ways to detect it is with our motion activated talking Toy Dog Hidden Camera with a 30 hour battery life that only records and is activated when there’s motion in front of the lens. It has a 72° viewing angle which is enough to cover any room. No one would be suspicious of the cuddly little talking dog that can lull baby to sleep. But inside is a pinhole camera and DVR to record any malicious activity.
And for older kids who love to ride their bikes, walked and play outdoors or parents who walk a dog at night our multicolored Child Safety Blinkers can be seen from a half mile away. They are battery-operated and can clip to belt loops or worn around the neck. They are both waterproof and weatherproof.
