Flat-screen TVs pose threat to toddlers


If you have young kids under age 6 in your household, I have a very important warning for you.

I read in The Arizona Republic about yet another child, in this case fortunately injured — not killed — from a flat-screen TV. You might wonder, “Flat-screen TVs TV killing kids?” It’s become very common in the ER for kids to show up injured from flat-screen TVs.

Toddlers pull on all the cables for DVR, the cable box, etc., and yank down the TV down on themselves. Fortunately, it’s become very easy to use cabling that attaches to the wall even without drilling holes that will make your child safe around your home.
