  - Avoid taking medicines in front of children, since youngsters tend to imitate grown-ups. Never call medicine "candy."

The Centers for Disease Control add:

- Post the poison control number 1-800-222-1222 on or near every home telephone.

- Know the names of the plants in your house and yard. Identify poisonous plants and place them out of reach of children or remove them.

- Check your home for lead-based paints. Contact the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD to receive more detailed information.

Meantime, take a few minutes and look around your home. If anything can harm a child, lock it up!
