Summer vacation is almost here and children will undoubtedly be spending more time at home. Parents who want to make their homes more "kid-friendly" may want to start with the windows.

According to GoSanAngelo.com, parents should "get down on [their] child's level" when child-proofing their home. This will make it easier for moms and dads to spot the potential dangers that normally would be ignored by people of adult-height.

Homeowners that have venetian blinds or window shades with long cords have a few options when saftey-proofing their abode. Parents can attach holdbacks, usually used to gather curtains together, to their window frame and tie the blinds' cords to the metal hooks.

As an extra measure of precaution, those with youngsters may want to install cordless blinds. These beautiful window coverings possess the benefits of traditional blinds without any potential hazards.

In addition to safe blinds, some parents may want to install window guards as well, to keep children from opening windows. According to the National Safety Council, parents should make sure the guards have a release mechanism so that they can be opened for escape in an emergency.
