“What if they fall?” asks Betty Kline, whose son Andy was recently caught using a step stool. “I mean today he was only two feet off the ground, but what about tomorrow? His dad’s a painter, we have very high ladders in our garage.”
Mrs. Kline’s concerns are not unfounded. In fact, leading health experts across the nation agree: falls from high places can and will hurt. If you are concerned that your children are using ladders to get high, seek professional help immediately. Some of the tale tell signs of ladder usage include, having retrieved something off of a very high shelf or having recently changed a lightbulb.
