  2. Recycle old TVs, arrange to have a charity organization pick it up once you have decided that it is no longer needed.
  3. Keep heavier items lower to the ground to avoid a child from climbing to reach for an item.
  4. If your TV sits on a stand, make sure it is sturdy enough to hold the weight. Secure the TV to the stand and the stand to the wall.
  5. Keep remote controls, toys, and other items that might attract children off TV stands or furniture.

Always Supervise your children!
