Childproofing House For Guests With Kids

Do You Expect Others to Childproof Their Houses For You?

The kids are coming! Childproofing is something lots of parents do, but should the same be expected of others? Many moms and dads choose to put locks on their oven knobs, cushions around the coffee table, and plug lids in unused electrical sockets. If a person decides to host a family for dinner, a party, or overnight, should he or she take safety precautions before the wee guests walk or crawl through the door, too? Simple things like putting breakables up high or closing the doors to off-limit rooms give parents more of an opportunity to relax and cut down on potential safety hazards. What's your opinion?
