The first step in protecting your kids is to "child-proof" your home so they won't hurt themselves. This includes:

Removing small things they could choke on;

Taking steps to stop burns, drowning, and falls;

Moving poisonous things like cleaners, medicines, vitamins, and plants in your home or garage out of reach;

Padding or taking away sharp edges or corners that could cut;

Putting safety locks on drawers, cabinets, and doors; and

Locking up or getting rid of dangerous weapons like guns and knives.
