While you want to use cabinet latches to restrict access to those cabinets that contain household products that could be dangerous in your child's hands, you may also want to designate a special safe cabinet that contains things with which your child can safely play while you make dinner. Don't put cabinet latches on this cabinet, or that may confuse your child and send a mixed message and the open cabinet latch can also be a safety hazard for your child. Also, always make sure that the safe play cabinet is not connected with any cabinets that hold dangerous substances. Finally, select a location for the play cabinet that is well away from the area where you cook.
