If you are a parent, the safety of your children is probably often on your mind. There are just so many ways that children could get hurt, even in your own home, and it seems impossible to think about everything that could possibly go wrong.
One way that many young children get into trouble is by sticking objects into wall receptacles. It could be that they have seen you do the same with contacts, and their curiosity was piqued. Of course, teaching your children that this is dangerous is very important, but as you know, children don’t always listen or remember.
While getting plastic covers for your outlets might work, these are not an ideal solution. Instead, you could install tamper resistant receptacles. These wall receptacles are made in such a way that the outlet will only accept a plug that provides equal pressure on both sides of the outlet. This will make it much more difficult for your children to hurt themselves.
