BHUBANESWAR, NOV 20
Home is the first place which needs to be made child-safe. But, quite often parents and guardians ignore situations at home which may create dangerous situations for kids. Similarly, while going outside with kids all should be very careful over several things like obeying traffic rules and others. Parents should teach their children to obey traffic rules, to be safe in school and various other things.
