Open windows can kill your child
Many homes have large windows, and the window sill is easily within a child's reach. Higher sills often have furniture nearby that a child can easily climb. Kids love to look out windows, so if you leave one of these child-reachable windows open, you have a disaster waiting to happen.
Children climb through open windows and fall out all the time. Hundreds of kids are injured or die this way every year.Window screens are not child-proof. A heavy child can easily pop out the screen on purpose, or fall against it and pop it out accidentally.
