4 Ways to Protect Yourself Against Crooks

Burglar SignLittle things you do daily may literally be opening the door to your home to burglars. Home theft may take less than 10 minutes. As a dad, your job is to protect your family at all costs, and ensure their safety.  Here are 4 Ways to Protect Yourself Against Crooks.

Never Leave Your House Unsecured

When you go for your morning walk, make sure you close and lock all doors and windows. You might think, “I’ll just be gone for a few minutes.” That may be all a burglar needs to break into your home.

Most burglars walk or drive down a street to determine which house would be easiest to break into. They may watch you leave your house and not lock the door. If they have been watching the neighborhood for a few days or weeks, they may even know your schedule.

If you live in a house with a very long driveway, even walking out to the end of the driveway to check on the mailbox or take out the trash could be enough time for a burglar to walk in and take something.

Burglars aren’t interested in stripping your household. They want to take the two or three most expensive things they can walk out with quickly. In the amount of time you’ve walked to the end of your driveway and back, your laptop or jewelry could be gone.

Don’t Advertise Your Valuables

Be careful when you put out boxes from expensive purchases. Many types of packaging can tip off a burglar as to what you may have.

A box for an expensive set of speakers may mean you have a valuable stereo system inside. A box for a jewelry chest can mean expensive jewelry. Boxes for luggage might mean you and family are going on a trip soon and won’t be home. Even boxes for children’s toys might mean a mother who might have jewelry lives in the house.

Keep windows covered, so people can’t see inside. If possible, keep expensive TVs and stereos out of sight. In this day of huge, inexpensive flatscreen TVs, that can be difficult, which might make you consider a home security system. Services such as www.securitycompanies.com can direct you to security companies that can help protect those valuables you just can’t keep hidden.

Control Trash!

Trash is one of the easiest ways to find out about a household. If you take your trash out the night before pick up, you give burglars a window of opportunity to sift through it.

From magazines, they can tell if there is a single man or woman living in the house, an elderly person or a family with children. The mail can tell them the chances of valuable jewelry or electronic equipment, of your financial status, or that you might even have guns inside.

Your trash provides a little biography of you and your family. Be aware of what goes into your trash, and don’t leave it out for someone to get to know you.

Be Aware of the Neighborhood

Talk to your neighbors. Read the local newspaper. Know what’s going on in your neighborhood. For example, a Seattle neighborhood recently experienced 16 home burglaries within less than a week. Some of the homes were hit twice.

Watch for unusual activity in your neighborhood. Find out how the break-ins were done, and make sure your home is secure from the current method being used.

Mean Girl Cliques: Helping Your Tween Beat Bullying


bully teens

Bullying doesn’t have to be anything more than a rumor or a dirty look to be hurtful. Bullying, backstabbing, exclusion and alienation— these things snowball quickly. Mean girl cliques have an arsenal full of insidious psychosocial techniques. If your daughter is the victim of their taunts and relational aggression, she probably dreads the school hallways and may even experience abuse on social media sites.

As the parent, you can sense when something’s wrong. You can tell she’s distant and withdrawn. When you ask her what’s wrong, she replies, “Nothing, Dad. Just school stuff.” Bullying has expanded from what is used to be. Technology and social media make it easier and faster to spread vicious rumors, name call and break a young person down. Yes, a malicious Facebook status update or Instagram photo can be just as (if not more) hurtful than being pushed at the playground.

Mean girl cliques have more tools at their disposal. I-Safe Foundation reported more than half of adolescents and teens have been bullied online. About 25 percent have been repeatedly bullied through their cell phones. The Hartford County Examiner reports that only one out of 10 adolescents tell their parents about cyberbullying. If that’s true, how can you help your tween? Continue reading Mean Girl Cliques: Helping Your Tween Beat Bullying


Essentials for a Fun Family Road Trip

Family Road Trip

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said that life is journey, not a destination. Family road trips embrace the idea that the adventure to a place is equally or more important than arrival. Many factors go into a successful road trip: the comfort of the vehicle and clothes you wear, snack and beverage selections, and the activities planned for travel.

Start by choosing a road trip your family will love. Once you’ve made your plans, pack your bags with these road trip essentials.

Rent a Comfortable Ride

A comfortable ride can make or break your travel experience. Why rent? Road trips speed up wear-and-tear on vehicles and add quite a few miles. Rentals can be roughly $25 per day, which is affordable and worth avoiding damage to tires and clogged vehicle air-filters. A few suggestions from dealerships in Dallas: The Toyota Highlander is great for traveling rugged terrain. The Honda Pilot is known for its easy maneuverability, above-average fuel economy and interior comfort. Continue reading Essentials for a Fun Family Road Trip
