Cautious Kids

Some of the most important lessons we can teach our young ones are safety guidelines and how to approach dangerous situations when unattended. When children approach the age of 3 years they become very impressionable and are suitable for learning some important life lessons. This is the idea time to start teaching them some basic safety rules.

Hazards at Home

Hazards involving intense heat can cause many injuries to children every year, this is often because they are unaware of all potential dangers in their own home. Hazards such as a boiling kettle, hot radiators, lit ovens and fireplaces can all cause injuries to unsuspecting children. Little ones are particularly explorative when unsupervised to be sure they have a safe area to play in when they are left with time to themselves. Putting safety measures in place around your home is a good way of reducing the risk of children getting injured, but teaching them to be cautious themselves is an invaluable lesson that could make a large difference when they stumble across a shiny hazard without parental supervision.

Travelling Alone and Dealing With Strangers

As children reach the age in which they go to play with friends and make short journeys to and from nearby houses and shops, it’s vital that they know the importance of travelling safely and not to engage in conversation with any unfamiliar faces. Ensure they have a safe route to all destinations and remain in public view the entire time. If possible they should travel with groups of their friends to ensure they are not alone while travelling home.

The potential danger involved with a child engaging strangers is something no parent wants to think about, but ensuring your child knows when someone is clearly bad news can make a huge difference in the way they approach strangers.

Environmental Hazards

As children grown older and are approaching high school, they are always more likely to travel further out to play with friends, ride bikes and play sports, but there are important lessons they must learn about environmental hazards. An unsupervised reservoir may seem like an idea place to play and swim to a group of children, if they are uneducated on this topic they may be unaware of generally how difficult it becomes to clamber back out again once wet.

Pylons may appear to be giant climbing frames with which to play and show off to friends, but children may not know about the tens of thousands of volts flowing through the pylons electrical system. It is vital that children learn lessons such as these at a young age; a sensible child is much more likely to stay safe when left alone and can have a positive impact on their more troublesome friends.

Home Security: A Familys Best Friend

Civil Records

We’ve all heard the stories, read the police logs and watched Law & Order SVU: Women and children are prime targets for any attacker. This doesn’t mean that women should bulk up and start training for the heavyweight Olympics – it just means families should consider taking the necessary precautions to protect themselves. One of the simplest and most basic ways a family can do this is by updating their home security system.

Massachusetts resident Chelsea White was 17 when she walked into her house, and for the first time, realized something was wrong.

“I came home from school and got a call from my mom asking if I had taken her computer,” Chelsea explained. “I hadn’t, and it was then that we both realized we had been robbed during the day.”

Chelsea is a resident on the North Shore, one of the safest areas to live in Massachusetts.

“I got this horrible feeling of violation. It was very strange knowing someone had been in your house and had gone through your things. They had gone through my drawers, my mom jewelry box and my brother’s closet,” she added.

Reported incidents of violent crime decreased in all four regions of the country in 2010. However, reported incidents of burglary rose 3.9 percent; Chelsea’s family being one of them.

Buying a security system is the safest way to prevent any unwelcomed guests into your home. In fact, intruders look for homes without alarm systems. Unfortunately, one of the two reasons homeowners consider purchasing a home security system is because they already experienced a robbery or break-in.

Don’t wait and let this happen to you and your family.

A standard residential alarm system includes: control panels, security keypads, motion detectors, door and window contacts, glass break sensors, sirens and signs.

Additional features include: backup system, two-way monitoring, remote control and more.

Leave Fido Out of It

Homeowners often consider purchasing a dog for home security. Although effective, a guard dog is not the best idea for a “family” environment. For example, in the unfortunate event that a break-in does occur and your security dog saves the day, if the dog got injured or was killed, how would you explain to your children that it was just doing it’s “job.”

Such was almost the case for Chelsea’s family.

“We had 2 dogs, two Golden Retrievers,” Chelsea said. “We think one of our dogs, Rockie, was hit by one of the robbers based on his behavior after that day.”

To Chelsea and her family, realizing that her pets were traumatized was more upsetting than finding out that the robber stole her mother’s laptop, brother’s Xbox and over 50 videogames.

Most families would agree that a pet is considered “part of the family.”

The price of safety

If you do decide to purchase a home alarm system, make sure you research the best home security companies out there.

Typically, a home security alarm system includes an installation fee ($100 to $1,500), and a monthly monitoring contract ($9 to $40). Other charges depend on the particular plan or package you choose.

Money is always an issue, especially in today’s economy. However, because of today’s economy, people are also getting more desperate and resort to crime. Protecting your family should be priceless.

Who do you send your child to school with?

Who do you send your child to school with?

If you love your kid, then think for a moment. You are dressing your kid for the school when a stranger knocks at your door with his car parked in the driveway and engine on, and he asks politely, “Sir, would you like me to give your child a ride to school?,” would you allow your innocent child to go with this stranger? Definitely not! On the other hand, this incidence may upset you and cause you to wonder why a stranger was showing interest in your child. Like all other parents, you will start thinking about your child’s protection. But the fact is you allow your child to go to school with a stranger every morning when he or she boards the school bus. How well do you really know your child’s bus driver? Though there is no point in doubting the schools ability to hire the best and most responsible personnel for their buses, you can’t afford to rely upon the schools for all safety related issues that may come up while your child in on the bus. It has been found that several schools have even employed teachers with criminal backgrounds. So, while we like to think that schools won’t make any mistakes in matters related to our children’s safety, we should also remain diligent when it comes to the safety of our children. This may help avoid issues, that when ignored, could put our children at risk.

So, if you are concerned about your child’s safety, ask the school principle or headmaster for the name of your child’s bus driver. Then all you need to do is to visit www.CriminalRecords.org, and type in the name of the driver into the search box. With a click of your mouse, you will have access to all sorts of information related to the bus driver. You will know if the driver has a criminal past, has ever indulged in a sex related offense and whether or not they are involved in any civil cases. If your report comes back clean, well, this is a reason to rejoice! The person in question probably doesn’t pose any danger to your child.

In some situations the person in question may have committed their crime in a different state than the one they are currently employed in. In such a case as this, unfortunately, this offense may not come back in your original search. Sadly this does not mean they will not commit another offense. Many times criminals move to new areas, only to repeat their offenses. As a concerned parent it is your job to protect your children from being in the care of these types of people.

Gathering the information you need is much easier through use of this website. You just type in the name of the driver and the information follows. The information will not only help you to protect your child from any unfortunate incidence; you will also save dozens of children who ride the same bus from a tragic incidence. It’s always wise to look into the people with whom your innocent child spends the time. The observation may be difficult, but a preferable outlook isn’t far off with the help of this website.
