In brief: Keep out of reach
Check your smoke detector. Replace the batteries if necessary.
Put plastic covers in unused electrical outlets. Keep hot appliances and cords out of reach. Keep all electrical appliances out of the bathroom. Don't cook with your child at your feet. Use the back burners on the stove with the pan handles out of reach. Turn your water heater down to 120°f (50°c).
