Back-to-School Safety Advice from Sentry Watch—Providers of Home Security in North Carolina Despite the fact that kids are away at school for extended periods of time, measures to keep children safe begin at home. It’s important to talk to children about safety, so they will be prepared at home, on their way to and from school and while at school. Home security in North Carolina begins with you. At Home Seeking alarm companies for home security in North Carolina is a good basis for creating safety for the family, but children need a little extra instruction on home safety. If your child will be at home alone, instruct him or her not to open the door for anyone, and teach them how to properly operate the security alarm equipment and any appliances they might use for heating food. To School If your children walk to school, instruct them to follow a safe path each and every time. Take a walk with them to show them where to walk and practice a few times before sending them off to school alone. Talk to other parents and see if your child can walk with their children to and from school; there is safety in numbers. Make sure your child knows how to read and obey traffic signs and signal, and it’s a good idea to introduce your child to the crossing guard, so he or she is comfortable crossing the street. If your child rides the bus, instruct him or her to stand in the correct designated place while waiting for the bus. Buses have a hard time seeing children if they are standing or bending down on the road. When the bus arrives, inform your child to take a seat quickly. Coming Home Backpacks, although useful, can cause bruising, sprains, back pain and other problems. If possible, try to limit the amount of books and supplies your child carries around. Instruct your children to carry the backpack on both shoulders, especially if they are toting heavier amounts of books. Instruct your child to come home immediately from school. It’s important that your children not go off with a friend or do other activities unless they have your permission. Knowing where your child is and minimizing the time it takes them to walk from school to home will help keep them safer. While at School Playground accidents occur more often than expected. Tell your child to let an adult know immediately if he or another child gets hurt on the playground. While you hope your child never encounters a bully, it can happen. Tell your child to let the teacher or another adult know if someone is bullying them, and encourage him or her to let you know about ANY problems at school. If the problem is not addressed quickly, speak to your child’s teacher and other adults to put it to an end. Before your children leave school, be sure they let their teacher or other supervising adult know that they are leaving by bus or any other method. Alarm companies can only do so much to protect your family, teaching your child preventative safety measures will keep your child safer.
