  • Cut all the cords. In fact get rid of all blinds in the house. They are not safe for kids and should be tossed out.. Then be careful what she gets to play with. No scarves or fake necklaces either. You have to childproof EVERYTHING.

    No bashing here.... I have three kids and things that you would never think they could make into something dangerous, they do.

  • Has she seen anything, that she could be imitating? I haven't experienced this with my ds maybe you should take to her dr. Im sorry I wasn't more help I wish you the best.

  • If she has a habit of doing it they should surely be supervised at all times, otherwise the room they are playing in should be safe as in anything she could wrap around her neck being out of reach. This could have really ended up a tragic situation for your family.
