Home security, especially child safety within the home is a very important aspect of moving. Nothing is as important as the safety of your children in your home. Follow these tips to ensure your children are safe in your home, even if you are not there.
If your children are old enough and responsible enough to be home alone without adult supervision, be sure they known these safety essentials:
- The fire escape route
- Where emergency phone numbers and rules are posted
- Basic first-aid skills
- Safest routes home from school
Make sure your children are aware of who is allowed in the home while you are away and how to check an individual’s identity before opening the door.
If children are allowed to prepare and eat food while you are away, teach them how to do it safely. Make sure they are instructed how to switch off appliances. If they are not allowed, make sure they know that they have to keep away from these appliances.
When your children play outside, be sure they know exactly what their physical boundaries are and how to react to strangers. Also ensure they know where exactly they are allowed to play.
