Bathroom Safety First: Water Smarts

As you know, you should never leave children unattended near standing water. Always stay within touch supervision of young children – within an arm's reach -- during bath time, and don't leave bath supervision up to your older kids.

To avoid scalding, keep your water heaters at 120 degrees Fahrenheit or less, and double-check the water temperature with a thermometer when bathing young children. The ideal temperature is about 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
