I know I'm gonna get flack for this, but I didn't...
Now I do keep all chemicals on the top shelf of the linen closet but I didn't safeguard anything else...
I think that when the child goes to another persons home, it isn't childproofed so the child must learn boundaries.
I have Never Childproofed! The thing is to House proof your baby! What if you go somewhere that has no kids in the home? You will be constantly chasing your child, or your child will be constantly breaking things! My children were ALWAYS home proofed, Not my house was baby proffed! And fondly enough, I could bring my kids ANYWHERE and NOT worry about them getting into ANYTHING! Thats just MY opinion, it doesn't work for everyone.

I totally childproofed. And will for as long as it takes. My kids are the ones teaching others how to remove the outlet covers at less than a year old :P My kids invent ways to get hurt even when it is childproofed. I get that others' homes may not be- that is why I keep a close eye on them.
I am grinning a bit over the statements that I am some how teaching my children that they can touch everything. Mine would do it any way... Yes, even with consistent redirection/discipline. I think this concept is more temperament related than some parents give credit for. Some kids are more spirited and adventurous than others. We are working on not getting into drawers right now. We have one drawer in the living room that they are not allowed to touch and they continue anyway but will get it in time I am sure.
