As your kids grow up, it becomes increasingly hard to keep track of them and keep them where you know they’re safe. They want to go to their friend’s house, they want to go to the park by themselves, or they want to go out to the movies with their boyfriend or girlfriend. Here are two ways to teach your child about safety, and we will also show you how Security ONE can help you know where your child is and when they got to where they’re going.
- Teach your child to trust their instincts
As your child grows older, it is very important to teach them warning signs. Teach them what to do if they notice someone is walking behind them for too long. Make sure they know that if you didn’t warn them someone was going to pick them up from school, they should not go with someone who says, “Your mom/dad told me to come pick you up.” You can create a ‘password’ that only you, your child, and anyone who would pick them up would know. This will ensure the child knows it’s safe to go with them.
- Keep an open-talk policy
It’s very important that your child knows they can come to you with anything. Keeping an open-talk policy will allow them to feel comfortable coming to you for help. A lot of kids are often afraid to tell their parents what is troubling them, in fear of punishment or angering their parents. It is also a good opportunity to teach your kids good judgment skills when you talk problems through with them.
You’re probably wondering how Security ONE can play a part in all of this. Well here’s how:
We offer a number of options, one of the most recommended for knowing if your child made it home, is our Indoor IP Camera and Total Connect App.
This camera is a plug and play. All you need is an internet connection, so you are free to plug it in where you best see fit. With the easy-to-use Total Connect App, you can see real-time footage, as well as receive notifications on when your child makes it home from school. It will send you 10 second clips of these notifications and will be stored for 30 days. One place we suggest setting your camera up is facing towards the front door. This is a sure fire way to know who is entering your house and when.
