|These leaning agents and medications have been labeled as poisonous.|
That day, and the events that followed, really were a big impact in my life. I value life. I try to live my life like everyday could be my last day alive. The people I am entrusted with are precious to me. I am overly protective of family members and friends.
That's why I think it's important to keep medications and cleaning agents out of reach of children. I still remember seeing my not-even-two-year-old brother bent over, while my cousin made him vomit the poison. I also remember how mad my dad had been previously when we kids had spilled the sugar on the floor. I believe that in our defense, the sugar was within our reach. I think it was too harsh for my dad to have spanked us so hard.
I now keep all cleaning agents, medications, and yes, even the sugar, out of reach of my own children. I have always made sure to keep those things way up high. I cringe when I see parents leave their cleaning agents under their sink or on the floor in the bathroom. I also cringe when I've seen ideal kitchens with the cleaning agents like Ajax and Palmolive under the sink. My mother had the sugar under the sink, which was within our reach. We kids played with the sugar and suffered a bad consequence.

|The lock is too high for my youngest, who is five years-old.|
Well, I hope I have compelled you all to keep your medications and cleaning agents out of reach of all children. I know that there are locks available for the lower cabinets. I just think it's not worth the chance that your children could get poisoned if they open those locks. I don't think anyone would want to see a child choking on poisonous liquids and/or pills. Would anyone like to see a child having to vomit out poison?
How about it, my readers? Do you have poisonous items out of reach of children? Even out of reach of visiting children? I encourage you to do so. Please don't even trust the organic cleaners. It's not worth taking that chance.
I pray that God's wisdom and peace fill you all, my beloveds.
