   Short of removing all the furniture and covering the electrical outlets,
is this possible?

   Is that possible either? I know that even though my mother was a
full-time at-home mother, she still had to take an eye off us occasionally
to answer the door or the phone, or to attend to housework. What you're
recommending here seems to be that someone be there 100% of the time, just
to child-mind?

   I see your point, but I don't think that what you're saying can actually
be done.
