Make yourself a Difficult Target

Now a day’s we have seen many incidents broadcast on the news or even a story personally experienced by our friends or neighbours. Sometimes people try to break into and  steal some valuable things from houses especially when no one is home, this usually happen during daytime when everyone is at work and the children went to school.

Last summer, I’m a bit worried with our kitchen door, we live in an old wooden house due to the movement and drying out of the soil especially living in a dry country our door tends to expand and shrink that we find difficult to lock it properly. It’s been a few times I always left the house late and when my hubby arrives home early he tells me I don’t lock the door but I’ve always said I did and will result sometimes to an argument because he is accusing me of leaving the house door unlocked but sooner we realize because of the strong wind when we were inside the house and it’s close but unlock it open itself that's what happening when we are not home and that’s the time we notice that our door has a problem. I told my hubby to take immediate action in fixing it as we don’t know someone could enter our house anytime. Thanks God it was fixed.

Another thing, during our garbage bin night being emptied by council garbage truck collector the next morning there been a times we forget to take the bin inside especially when we arrive home late and forget to put in the next day again. Sometimes we don’t pay attention on little things around us not knowing those can be an attraction and target of thieves. We learn a lesson to always drag inside the backyard as soon as it’s empty. Another thing is when you’re going for a holiday for few days tell your neighbor and allow them to take letter on your mailbox especially the junk mails once the criminal saw it’s building up it’s a good chance for them.

There are lots of ways to help prevent like remove covers for burglars and a protection provide by home security system and you can also get more information about the golden rules of crime prevention.

In web articles.info, I’ve read the most helpful tips online on how to reduce the chance of your house getting broken into. It’s very helpful to every household knowing our home safety measures sometimes we don’t realize that the little things are the best things in life.

These are timely reminders. We have never had any trouble, but we heard recently about how some young people break into houses just to make a big mess. They look for places that do not have a screen on the toilet window and stand on each others shoulders to get in there. They can also turn off the water, and if it is still turned off the next day they know that no-one is home.

Agree with you that time did change, since one could sleep with doors and windows open during the night.
We had some iron bars made in front of every window, even though looking a bit like a prison while looking outside, sleeping is possible without any thought about safety.
There were times when people came into the house and would put you asleep with some kind of spray and one would wake up the next day with quiet a view.
Wishing you always a safe day/night and a wonderful Sunday too.
