Debbie Deming: on Furniture Tipping

moving the podcast – interview from May 20, 2014

~~~

Episode 26. Debbie and I talk about the startlingly high number of children who are killed or injured by furniture tipping over on them. Debbie shares her personal story of loss, and talks about the organization she and her husband founded to prevent other people from losing the children they love.

“It just didn’t feel right to live with that knowledge and let other parents who don’t know the dangers just go about their life, and just hope that they’re not the next ones.”

  1. A friend told me just the other day about a couple she knew who lost their two year old to this very thing. So tragic.

    • Very very sad. I heard of it the first time over 20 years ago and then never thought of it again, even after I had nephews and nieces. It’s a shame it’s not as widely known as child safety locks and things like that. And so sad how many parents don’t want to put holes in the walls – they think it won’t happen to them.
