Understanding safety measures is an ongoing process. Fire safety is one that you may need to present to your child. Discuss the issue of fire safety in your home by listing the rules concerning matches, lighters, the stove, electrical outlets, etc. See if your child knows what to do if he/she would see a fire in your home. Discuss all the ways to get out of the house and where your child should go in the event of a fire. It is not too early to have a family plan for a fire emergency.
