The Best Home Security Tips (From Real Life Ex-Burglars)

Don’t Let the Kids Open the Door

Even if you live somewhere safe and don’t mind your kids playing outdoors by themselves, that doesn’t mean it’s a good idea for them to open the door.

Children can be trusting and often miss subtle clues. They might not be able to tell a visitor is actually a burglar. While the kid is coming to find you, the burglar can grab any valuables on display and disappear before you even reach the door. 

Tell your kids not to open the front door. That’s something for the grownups only.
