Giving Kids Privacy, How Much is too Much

This post is an extension of my thoughts after reading Mail4Rosey: There’s a Fine Line blog post. Growing up I felt that I didn’t have much privacy, if any at all. I wasn’t allowed to have my door shut very often, I wasn’t allowed to have privacy on the phone, I basically felt as if I wasn’t ever allowed to think for myself and develop my own thoughts about who I am and what I want to be. I felt sheltered, too crowded and given too many expectations of who I should become and how I should behave. With that […]

Be Safe with Guns

Having a gun can be both a liability and an asset. Keeping a gun safe is one of the most important aspects of gun ownership. When not in use, a gun needs to be kept away from children and visitors to your home. For safety reasons, simply keeping the gun out of reach is not a wise idea. Many gun owners use special gun safes to ensure that their firearm remains secure when not in use. Having a standard safe is quiet helpful; however, most safes will need to be resistant to fire and other adverse weather conditions. Guns should […]

Thinking About Home Security Systems

When you move to a new address, you must notify USPS among others of your address change and with that comes a packet with various details from companies offering you discounts because of your new move. In most instances I have looked at the deals and thought “yeah that’s cool, but I have no use for an of these” but this one particular address change this time around I found myself thinking about the home security offer that was found within the packet. I have always wanted to have some form of a home security system in place, granted we […]

There are so Many Home Security Device Options These Days

Where I live it has never really been thought of to ensure that your home is safe, per say. Back in the days of growing up, I recall the door of our home being left unlocked all of the time, windows were unlocked and it was simply a trust thing around that time in my world. Since growing up and becoming a parent of my own three children, I have become a bit more paranoid or OCD to be exact about ensuring my home, my children, my dog and my belongings are as safe as I feel them to be.

Back when my daughter was a young and I was a single Mom to her, I was super tight on money and I was locked out of my vehicle.  I recall that I had just gotten my vehicle warmed up, it was close to Christmas time in NH and it was cold outside.

Advanced Home Security Option Vivint Reviews

I am always talking about having a home security option because even though I am on lock down and live in a relatively safe neighborhood, you never know when something will strike.

I Don’t Want Her to See My Privacy

The other night at bedtime, I had three kids who needed to use the bathroom at the same time. Well that’s fine for the boys who are ages 3 and 5, no issues, let them use the bathroom together, however, my daughter is a nine year old GIRL and is not going to share the bathroom. First boy went pee and ran downstairs back to bed, then second boy (my youngest child) had to go pee and poop so he sat on the big toilet to go. Mean while he is jabbering away and his sister is patiently sitting down […]
