    What sign would you use to convey “danger”? For example, my daughter has started to open cabinets and touch the oven (not while on, but she wouldn’t know the difference if it was on). She has also started to pull at cords and what not. I don’t want her to hurt herself or something to fall on her. How would you convey that something is unsafe?

    ADMIN – Hi Sydnee,

    Early on we simply used no and don’t as our little ones got older we actually introduced the sign for danger.
