What is an 'attractive nuisance'?

 

A: This is a term used to define a hazardous area that children are attracted to. An example would be an unlocked construction site with construction trucks and equipment. Children are naturally very curious and their interest in construction equipment makes it very enticing to enter the property without regard for any potential hazards to their own life. Unfortunately, there are many attractive nuisances everywhere we go, and we must always be aware of where our kids are at all times.
