Life is ever-changing - a few months ago my daughter and granddaughter moved in with us. During all of the upheaval of moving, I didn’t give a second thought to the security plan until recently.
In the middle of the night about a week ago, one of my dogs went nuts! Barking and growling at the window. It was a really windy night and, after investigating, it turns out that a small branch had hit the window and woken my dog up. It was then I realized that I hadn’t talked about a security plan with my daughter - especially since my granddaughter’s room is between my room and the front door.
I’ve got a very low-tech drawing of the house (not to scale… and this isn’t my house’s layout for my family’s security) and have talked with my daughter about what to do if someone breaks in.
With the holidays coming and families visiting, now is a great time to review your home defense plan and share it with house guests.
