If you've got a lil one who's excited about helping out in the kitchen, use rear burners so she won't be in danger of reaching up and grabbing a hot pan. Once your tot is old enough to understand, teach her about potential dangers of cooking with heat. And if you've got a gas range, consider covering knobs with safety covers ($10 for 5) to keep the whole family safe from unwanted gas leaks. Turn pan handles away from the front of the range to keep free from roving hands.
