Preschool Pointers - 5 - Re-Childproof your Childproof

Problem: Your kid broke something. Again.

Solution: Try to go easy, no matter how annoying it is. Things happen. Accidents happen. And really, it's at least half your fault. What was something breakable doing within arm's reach of your kids? For me, it was the soap dispenser, and looking back, I can't believe it lasted as long as it did.

Now, when I first fashioned the kids weren't using it. So, I didn't have to think about whether or not porcelain was an appropriate fit. And last year, when the girls started using the bathroom regularly, I never updated my thinking. All of the millions of times my kids used that soap, I never once thought porcelain soap container + toddlers + tile floor = disaster.


So, go through your space periodically as your kids grow. They may now have access to things they didn't before. And those things might break. Re-Childproof your Childproof. Save yourself.
