Child Proof Your Office , How to
I’ll be honest – I’m not a real great rule follower. I’m a bit of a rebel by nature and struggled with a lot of CPS’s minimum standards when I first became a foster dad. As nit-picky as they can be, I realized the gravity of these rules when I started hearing about kids being removed from homes that didn’t cross their t’s and dot their i’s. It’s a broken system and we are broken people, but if it’s the difference between my foster child sleeping in his warm bed down the hall or on the floor of the CPS office, I’m going to do everything I can to know the rules and to follow them diligently (if not begrudgingly).
Often times (too often in fact), it falls on my wife’s shoulders to make sure our apartment is up to par with CPS standards. This usually involves lots of cleaning, organizing, locking, and occasionally purging the fridge.
Ryan recently posted some great photos of his new child-proofed office setup. Now these are some precautions I can get excited about! Check out the whole set of pictures on flickr. Whether you’re a foster dad, and adoptive dad, or heck – even if you’re not dad this is pretty cool! Maybe if we plead with him enough he’ll flesh out the images with some instructions.
