During the typical toddler stage, a child is learning to walk, run, climb, crawl, jump, and play. During this time of energy and exploration, it is important to be watchful of any possible furniture that can tip over and fall on top of a little one. Toddlers and many children on the autistic spectrum (the “spectrum”) love to climb and use furniture to brace themselves. They are not aware of the dangers climbing on furniture can pose on their safety. Dressers, appliances, book cases, and televisions can all be dangerous to a climber, and all need to be secured as best as possible.
There are many options to keep furniture from toppling over. One possibility is to install furniture safety straps.
