It is crucial to secure all waterways and ponds with a fence.
Danger in harmful substances
Many dangers for kids are easy to detect. We can remove sharp scissors and knifes and detect objects that can fire easily, however it might be difficult to identify dangerous chemicals or harmful substances as they are invisible and difficult to be noticed by a human eye.
