Your children are watching your every move. There are many things that you do everyday that might seem harmless, but if your young child were to try to imitate you, it could spell disaster. Take a simple thing, such as, plugging an appliance into a wall receptacle. Many children have been seriously hurt or even killed from trying to insert something into a wall receptacle. Naturally, the first thing to do is to train your children not to do something like that, but as you are probably aware, children don’t always do as you say.
One added layer of protection is to install tamper resistant wall receptacles that will prevent them from inserting foreign objects. Tamper resistant receptacles have a spring loaded shutter that will only let something in when inserted with equal force on both sides of the receptacle. Having an electrician replace your receptacles can give you some peace of mind as a parent.
