Stoves are a real danger zone for children. To prevent accidental burns and fires, turn all pot and pan handles away from the front of your stove and use the back burners whenever possible. Pull the lighter knobs off the stove when not in use and keep them nearby in a drawer. (Most knobs come off very easily for cleaning.) Teach kids to stay away from Mommy or Daddy when you’re cooking. Also, when installing a new oven range, make sure you install the anti-tip brackets to prevent tip-over if kids ever climb up on an open oven door.
