Family is the most important thing in the world. Our family is what we work for and what makes us happy, and they are the ones we spend most of our time with outside of work. When we have a family we will do anything to keep them safe and protected, and this is why this year we are looking at some simple tips to keep the kids safe and the family happy in 2019.

Plan for the future

One of the things which we never want to think about as a parent is a time after we are gone. However things can happen and one day we might no longer be there in person to keep our kids safe. This is why it’s a good idea to get the help of a law firm to write a will for yourself and to ensure that your children and your partner will be well looked after if you are ever gone.

Buckle up

There are many simple things we can do every day to help keep us and our family safe, and one of those things is to be safe on the road. Be sure that everyone in the car, including dogs, have a seat belt on and are fastened in safely. This will protect any of you from being thrown forward if you have a crash, and it can save all of your lives.

Wear helmets

Wearing a helmet when riding a bike might be something which you never did as a child, but this is most likely due to the fact that safety wasn’t a key issue when we were in our younger years. Now that you have children you will want to make sure that they wear a helmet at all times when on a bike to protect their head from injury. This can be the difference between life and death of your child falls off their bike at high speed so be sure to do this.

Close the windows

When you have cats, dogs and children in the house, it is incredibly important that you don’t leave the windows open on the top floor of the house. If you do want to let some air circulate through the home make sure to only open the window a tiny amount and lock it in the open position. Kids and animals are curious creatures and if they try to lean out of the window to look outside this could be incredibly dangerous and they could have a nasty fall.


Be careful by water

When you are out and about during the summer months, one of the things you will want to make sure of is that you are careful around water and that you don’t let anyone fall in. This is especially true near canals and rivers where a child or a pet could easily fall into the water and be swept away. Make sure that you stand between your child and the water to keep them safe.

Life insurance

One of the ways which you can ensure your family’s safety and lifestyle in the future is to stay a life insurance policy in your name. No one wants to think about a time after they are gone but when you have a family it is something which has to be on your mind at all times. Consider getting a plan soon and paying into it every month, and over time you will accrue a decent sum which will help your family with your funeral costs and their life once you have passed on.

Install alarms in the home

Our home is our temple and it is super important for us as a family to keep this space as safe as we can for everyone who lives in the home. This means that you will want to make sure no one ever breaks into the house and tries to steal anything or threaten your loved ones. The best way for you to prevent this from ever happening is to set up an alarm system in the home which will trigger if anyone tries to break in during the night. You can also add some extra measures to the home such as a system of cameras which can identify a suspect, a few motion sensing lights to deter anyone approaching the home, and even some thorny bushes to make it hard for them to climb through the windows. There are lots of ways to keep the home safe and your family safe too.
