Why you shouldn’t leave electrical items charging on your bed | AD

*This is a collaborative guest post

As many parents know, children are becoming highly proficient at using technology.

We use these gadgets so much in our everyday lives, that they have become ingrained in our daily routines. But, it’s so important we reassess how we should be using these devices safely.

By allowing children to use these devices we are in fact, unknowingly, leaving our children open to serious dangers. Dangers that could so easily be avoided.

This campaign from the charity Electrical Safety First, highlights an important message.

If you leave phones or tablets charging on your child’s bed, or you use an unbranded charger, your child’s life could be at risk.

Electrical Safety First are a UK registered charity urging parents and carers to follow this important advice:

  • Don’t leave your tablets or phones charging on your bed
  • Don’t use a cheap, unbranded phone charger
  • Don’t sleep with your tablet or phone underneath your pillow

Please share this important message with your loved ones too!
