Many people suggest that in households with small children even a tempered glass coffee table is unsuitable as the possibility of it shattering is just too great. Of course it is up to individual parents to make their own choices in this matter but it is always best to err on the side of caution where safety is at stake. For parents who consider a glass coffee table an absolute necessity the option of safety films should also be looked into.
Play games in the living room - board games or cards are always excellent means to solicit some bonding time in the household. Bring out the game box gather the family around the table and have a good hour playing UNO or monopoly. Parents no matter how busy they are should try to allocate some time during the weekend to be with their children. Kids who spend time talking or playing with their parents are known to grow up more emotionally secure. Besides that board games are also known to increase children's mental capabilities so they get not only precious bonding time with the family but some serious brain exercise too.
For this reason it is vitally important to check when purchasing a glass coffee table whether it has been made with tempered glass. Not only should you ask the sales assistant but you should seek confirmation that their response is truthful as it can be very hard to tell what type of glass a table is made from just by looking. You might consider it unlikely that it will shatter but people do fall particularly children. Even sitting on a table when distracted could cause it to shatter and inflict life shattering injuries.
A clear space for doing arts and crafts - If the table is not going to be used for displaying items it can be left clear for sessions like doing artwork finishing crafts like scrapbooks puzzles or assembling toys like wooden sets cars or robots. The small surface of a coffee table is large enough for both materials and some elbow room but it is comparatively easier to clean and clear away than the floor or the dining table top. For precaution place some protective sheet or paper to prevent permanent streaks on the wood. The height is also ideal for sitting down sans chair in a comfortable position for hours.
