It Takes a Whole Village

Home safety is more than just a familial effort.

Of course, a safe, secure home is inspired by those who reside in it. Tell your children to keep the doors locked, keep sharp objects out of reach, and get yourself a home security system (www.securitychoice.com is a good place to start your search).

But these sorts of tips don’t take into account the true, protective value of your community.

Think about it: nothing instills a feeling of safety quite like a firm sense of trust in those who surround you. Here are three quick and easy ways to build relationships between your neighbors and improve your communal safety simultaneously:

1. Start a neighborhood watch. It doesn’t have to be anything too official – just schedule a few shifts and get everyone involved. It’s a great way to build solidarity and keep a close eye on the neighborhood.

2. Get on the same page. Call a community meeting and ask for everyone’s questions, comments and advice on how to keep the neighborhood in order. Your neighbors from the other side of the block may have some totally different views on what’s off limits, so it’s important to hear them out.

3. Have a party! This one seems a little less intuitive, but it’s certainly helpful to be able to put names to faces. The better you get to know your neighbors in a shoulders-down setting, the comfier your environment will feel.

Whether you’re the type to get a ADT home security system from www.homesecuritysystem.com or the kind to just hope your kids make the right decisions, you’ve likely got a distinct safety style. Here are a few parenting oldies that aren’t necessarily the best advice anymore
“Don’t Talk to Strangers” – Of course, this one make sense in most contexts but sometimes kids should know they’re allowed to communicate. There have been instances where children have not asked for help because they’re more afraid of strangers than the danger on the flipside – set them straight.
“Trust all of Mommy and Daddy’s Friends” – It may sound like a horrible thing to report but crimes against children are overwhelmingly committed by people they already know. Make sure the communication lines are open with your children and that they know your allegiance is to them and them alone.
“Teacher Knows Best” – This isn’t necessarily a safety issue but nowadays it’s within your reason as a parent to make sure your children are getting the best education and the right kind of handling at school. Talk to them about what to report about their teacher.
