Try to have a toilet that can be closed (usually a toilet seat) and make sure it is always closed when the toilet is not in use. Squat toilets are very slippery when stepped on by your toddler, and it is feared that your child might fall. If you have a squat toilet, make a special cover for the squat toilet.
Location: Central Room
DVD / VCD Player is also quite dangerous for toddlers, especially the slot where the CD will come out if you insert a CD. Toddler’s fingers can be caught when the CD slot is pulled into the player. If you have a dvd / vcd player like that, especially if the storage area is always under the TV that is easily accessible to children, try to keep the storage area closed. So that difficult children cannot just massage into the DVD / VCD player.
TV Cabinet or Bookshelf
Even though they do not have climbing skills, children will always be curious about objects that they find attractive that are stuck in the TV cabinet or bookshelves, so they will try to climb and reach them. Because changing a cupboard or shelf is quite difficult, just keep an eye on your toddler, don’t let your guard down and find your child climbs the closet
Small objects scattered about
