The Window Covering Manufacturers Association is requiring all stock window blinds to be designed cordless or with an inaccessible cord. Child safety advocates are celebrating the decision that has been long overdue.

According to a study that was published in the magazine Pediatrics 225 children died after a variety of window cord related deaths between 1990 and 2015 while 16,800 kids were reported to end up in the ER due to window cord injuries.

Dr. Gary Smith a study senior researcher told Health Day last December, “We’ve known about this risk for over 70 years, yet we’re still seeing children strangled by these products. It’s just unacceptable.”

Smith also revealed his frustration with the window manufactures for dragging their heels with the decision. According to Smith this change could of went into effect a year ago.

To date, an average of one child dies a month due to window cord injury. It may have taken 70 years but we are happy to hear that change has finally arrived for the safety of children everywhere.

If you’re a parent that is going to go out and replace all the blinds in your home here are some tips to look out for. Look for the “Best for Kids” certification label on the packaging.

If replacing all the blinds in your house at once will break the bank experts recommend starting with the rooms in your house that your kids spend the most time in first.

If you’re renting and it states in your lease that you are not permitted to remove the window coverings experts suggest talking to your landlord. Explaining to your property manager about the new law in place and the potential safety hazard will sure help win your case.

The 53-year-old actress is a mother of two. Sandra adopted her daughter Laila, 5 ½ at the age of 3-years-old in December 2015 and her son Louis, 8, who she welcomed in January 2010 when he was just 3 ½ months old. Both of Bullock’s children were adopted from the state of Louisiana.

Bullock who is usually composed broke down in tears when opening up to Hoda about the special responsibility when becoming an adoptive parent, “You’re a forever parent the minute you accept the love of that child.”

The actress recently opened up to Ellen DeGeneres about the dynamics between Louie and Laila. She revealed that her son Louie is a doting big brother to Laila and is very protective of her. “He wanted his sister and he knew she was his sister, but now there are moments when they want to kill each other.” Bullock also explained that her son is the probable one to antagonize his sister between the two. She joked, “But I like that about her. I like that she’ll take a knife and cut a guy.”

The Oscar winner also spoke in the June issue of InStyle Magazine speaking on the advocacy of adoption and how she feels that we as a community must end the phrase “my adopted child.”

“Look: I’m all for Republican, Democrat, whatever, but don’t talk to me about what I can or can’t do with my body until you’ve taken care of every child who doesn’t have a home or is neglected or abused. It makes me teary-eyed,” she said.

“Let’s all just refer to these kids as ‘our kids.’ Don’t say, ‘my adopted child.’ No one calls their kid their ‘IVF child’ or their ‘Oh, s—, I went to a bar and got knocked up child.’ Let’s just say, ‘our children.’”
