First, always keep safety at the top of your priority list. This means that you need to regularly test all the safety features that come with your garage door, including things like automatic reversal and, if your door has this feature, pinch avoidance safety features. Testing the safety features can ensure that your door is working as it should, which can be a load off your mind.
Second, teach your children proper respect for the garage door. While it might seem like fun to play the hero who ducks and rolls under the closing door, that is unsafe and incredibly dangerous. Also let them know that the garage door is not a toy and needs to be treated as such. Of all the injuries that occur with garage doors, many of them occur to children.
Finally, make sure that you keep your garage door is kept secure from prying eyes and only allowed entrance to those that you have given permission.
