Medication packaging always has on it ‘keep out of reach of children.’ What this fails to take into account is the incredible resourcefulness of children who may seem too small to get up to cupboards or high shelves. I can tell you from experience that nowhere is safe. The only completely safe place for medicine is in a locked cupboard or box. Nor can you rely on ‘child proof’ containers to prevent accidental poisoning. Childproof containers seem to be adult proof (It can’t be just me that struggles with the tops) while children who have time on their hands always seem to get them open in the end.
