1 Bump

Has your child ever been shocked by a plug in?

My dd who is 5 tried to pull the nightlight out of the socket yesterday and got a good shock.

It scared her to death and she was freaked out for about 30 minutes after wards.

Wish she hadnt done it, but NOW she knows I am not lying about the plug hurting her!!!! She is one of those kids who has to figure it out on their own! Told her a million and one times not to touch them!!!

  • No. But my dd has a very mild shock from turning a light switch on and off too slow.

  • no, yet our plugs have always been hidden with furniture lol. i'm sorry your child had to go through it, sometimes that's the only way they learn.
