Ever had one of those days where the kids are bouncing off the walls, and before you know it, you're on a first-name basis with the ER staff? Yeah, we've all been there, done that, Louisiana – some of us as both the bored kid and the frazzled adult!

I still chuckle when I think about that one summer when my brother and I were so bored, that we invented our own version of 'the floor is lava.' Picture this: a wild game of jumping, climbing, and scaling every piece of furniture in the living room, all while avoiding touching the floor. Let's just say, we were sporting a few bruises as souvenirs from that 'adventure!'

And as a former step-parent, I've also seen some pretty unforgettable shenanigans. But some stories are best left untold... Just know that we wish you all things good when it comes to keeping the kids safe with the whole summer ahead of us. Between summer camps, packing lists, summer reading, and vacations, we're tired just thinking about it. The kids are already stir-crazy and Mom and Dad are already 'over it.' Accidents? Inevitable. That's why we have to be prepared! I stumbled upon SafeHome.org's 2023 Home Safety Report, and guess what? The top things causing chaos for our little darlings might surprise you. Ready to dive in?
