Keeping an eye on your children when you’re not home can be tough. To help you out, here are a few ways to ensure your kids are safe and not getting into trouble.
- Call them – Pick up the phone and call your kids to make sure that they’re okay. Ask them what they’re doing. If you notice a suspicious tone to their voice, they may be getting into trouble. Don’t settle for a text message check-in.
- Use your security system – Today’s home security systems can send you email and text notifications when your system is armed and disarmed. These types of notifications are a great way to make sure your kids are arriving home on time.
- Consider security cameras – Having security camera surveillance in a public space in your home will keep an eye on your child while you’re away. Many security companies offer remote video viewing options via the internet.
- Have a neighbor visit – If you’re not up for using technology, have a neighbor check in on your kids. It’s a great way to ensure that they are home and safe.
These are some of the best ways to monitor your kids when you’re not home.
