Home Alone Safety for Kids

 

Big kids are learning to be more independent, growing up and trying new things. By the time children turn 5, they sleep in bigger beds, eat new foods and play with different toys. As a result, big kids will experience an action-packed phase of development that affects their behavior and routines, so it’s important to ensure that they stay safe.
