Glass windows, particularly the decorative ones, enhance both the exterior appearance and interior space of one’s home. They serve as walls that protect, while at the same time letting in natural light to brighten one’s living space and offer the necessary view of the outside.

They are naturally curious about their environment, and children are drawn to glass windows like moths to a flame—offering them a kaleidoscope of the world outside.
Unsecured and damaged windows can be a safety hazard to children, causing injuries ranging from cuts from shattered glass panes to more serious ones, such as falls. Here are some ways you can childproof your windows.
