Due to climate change, weather conditions don’t happen anymore in season. They are around the whole year, almost mixing wet and dry seasons on the same months, owing mostly to the climatic phenomena of La Nina and El Nino.

Anyway, in these sudden freak changes of weather, it is important to know how to keep your kids safe, especially when you’re not at home with them.

Heavy Rains

During heavy and almost unceasing rains, you keep your kids indoors. That’s when they can get uneasy and bored and the cold weather can make them hungry almost every hour. Aside from keeping them out of the rain and safe inside the house, make sure to fix the leaks in the roof that may cause rain to seep through the house and cause accidents like sliding on the slippery floor or worse, electrocution. Imagine if kids get hungry and touch the fridge at the same time they’re stepping on seeping water barefoot.

And stock up on healthy foods for your kids in the fridge, by the way.

Make sure your place is safe from sudden surges of flood water. If your place is in a lower area susceptible to flooding, know where to evacuate to safety and make sure to instruct the babysitter about evacuation procedures in case flooding happens and you’re not around. Better yet, arrange to transfer your kids to houses safe from flooding prior to the onset of a storm or typhoon. Find out if your place is prone to flood surges or tsunami.

Intense Heat

Many die of heat waves or heat strokes. During intense hot days, a good way on how to keep your kids safe is to make sure your kids are well hydrated even if they are just inside the house. Keep clean and cold drinking water available in the fridge (plus, make sure you have ice ready in the freezer) and have your kids take sponge baths during the day aside from a full bath once a day.

Earthquakes

In case of an earthquake, the best place for your kids is to stay under a sturdy table, preferably one made of hardwood. An alternative is to make them sit or lie down in a triangular space. For instance, the concrete counter that supports your kitchen sink offers a triangular space with the floor. Keep your kids beside the counter because there’s a chance that if the ceiling collapses, it would rest on the part where the kitchen counter would hold it and form a safe triangular space under. Your kids will be safe there while waiting for rescue.

Kids should be kept away from glass windows or cabinets with glass panel doors, hanging chandeliers and electrical wires and shouldn’t be allowed to walk around as the tremor strikes.
