The world is a dangerous place for a child. Every object is potentially hazardous.

To educate parents and help them deal with these hazards, we have launched 'Playful'.

Playful - a child safety guide born out of years of experience from specialists in the pediatric ICU. The book covers every possible risk to a child, whether it is at home, at school or the playground. It offers expert tips on how to deal with each of them.

Child safety tips

When placing pots on the kitchen counter, always turn handles towards the back so that they are out of a child's reach.

Children can drown in as little as an inch of water. Always empty buckets after use and place them upside down.

Never leave chemical products like household cleaners or paint cans lying unattended around the house.

Be aware of where your children are in the playground. Stand close to them when they're learning something new.

Know exactly where your child is before you start reversing your car in the driveway.
