I worry about this every day. The windows in my son's room are so low I am always afraid that he is going to fall through them. Thank God that couple was riding past but no one probably would have noticed. Nothing against their mom, but I know after I put my son to bed, I only check on him once an hour or so.

I know accidents happen but I worry about everthing when it comes to my kids. I believe that you should have window gaurds put up on windows.They aren't that much money when you think of your childs safety. This will prevent children from accidently falling out, because I do understand that these things do happen accidently.

I know accidents do happen but there are ways that you can try to prevent the majority of them. I am probably the most worrysome parent their is. I do know that they do sell window guards to prevent this type of thing from happening. I'm sure they are fairly cheap, but even if they aren't it is worth it to prevent your child from getting hurt or worse.

Even checking once an hour may not have prevented this. Please get your windows protected so you don't have to be "always afraid".

It will give you great peace of mind if you secure them.
