It only takes a split second for an accident to happen.
It’s amazing how quickly toddlers can get into trouble. I remember being two steps behind my rambunctious toddler wherever he would go. I felt like I had super powers, being at the right place at the right time. I was right there to prevent him from banging his head against a tall dresser, or snatch a pair of scissors out of his hand.
But you can’t always be right there. A parent can look away for literally a second – like to pick up the phone, or get the remote. Suddenly, your toddler is in serious trouble.
