There are few things quite as magical as happy children during the holiday season. In the next few weeks your kids are likely to receive new toys for the holidays. Attorney Larry Coben recently spoke on KYW NewsRadio 1060 and offered words of advice for parents to keep their children safe.
Specifically, Attorney Coben advises parents to:
- Assume the worst. Assume the toy will be used in the most dangerous way possible and then decide whether or not to allow a child to play with it.
- Exercise caution when looking at age levels. There are no uniform standards used when setting recommended age levels on toys. Individual manufacturers set their own age levels since no government standards exist.
- Beware of flammable objects. In this season where space heaters and fireplaces are common be aware of how quickly a fire could start and significantly hurt your child.
