First, have them call once they have gotten home and locked the door behind them. Have them create a schedule so they aren’t just sitting at home watching television until you get there. Teach your child these points of contact and what to do in emergency situations:
  • how to dial 911
  • your address and phone number
  • the name, location, and phone number where your mom or dad works
  • the name, phone number, and address of a trusted neighbor
  • the name, phone number, and address of another emergency contact person, such as a grandparent or family friend
Arming your kid with this information will keep them safe and give you peace of mind.

What to do After a Break-in

Break-ins are scary, but you should know the proper precautions if one happens to you. Below are some steps that are extremely helpful and necessary if you come home and realize someone else has been in your residence—

Call the police and file a report.

Are you thinking, “Should I turn to the police?” The answer is yes, and it is the first thing you should do. Calling the police and filing a report puts the incident on record, which is necessary for both insurance claims and if you ever want to potentially find the thief(s) and retrieve your belongings.

Also do not touch anything in your home before the police arrive, as you may destroy key evidence the police need for finding and potentially prosecuting the burglar(s).

When the police arrive, make a complete list of all items that have been taken, including a thorough description and the approximate value of each.

Call the insurance company.

Whether you have homeowner’s or renter’s insurance, if you file a claim, there is a chance that you could recoup a decent amount for what was stolen. Call within 24 hours and make sure you have submitted all necessary information to the police, as the insurance company will need that information to process your claim.

Helping your College Student move in without (ALL OF) the Stress

Moving into your dorm or apartment as a college student is extremely exciting – until you factor in packing, transporting your stuff AND unpacking. Here are some tips on how to make moving in a little less painful —

1. Pack an overnight bag containing all the essentials.

The worst part about moving is never knowing where any of your stuff is when you first touch down at your new place. Relieve some of your stress by packing an overnight bag that has everything you need for a day or two so you can shower and decompress after a long day of moving.

2. Wrap your breakables (dishes, glasses, etc.) in clothing.

3. In addition to labeling what’s in your boxes, so you know what to unpack first.

Nothing is more frustrating than getting everything in your new place and then having no clue where it goes. Have your boxes labeled so that you (or your movers) can drop the boxes off in the rooms they are meant to go in. Saves you time in the long run.

How to Get What You Want from Your Landlord

Working with your landlord can sometimes be extremely frustrating – especially if you’re renting their property and its not a corporation. Luckily, we have compiled some tips for you to utilize when you’re in a sticky situation and aren’t getting the response you want.

  • Follow your landlord’s own procedure. First, check if your landlord has a procedure or a preferred method of contact when problems arise. Look for special contact directions first in your lease. 

 

  • Put your requests and complaints in writing. Documenting your efforts to contact your landlord will help strengthen your case if you need to go to court. It will also help you remember when and how you first tried to contact your landlord about a problem, in case you need to reference it in a subsequent letter. 

 

  • Be persistent. Don’t give up after just a couple of phone calls. If the person who takes your call tells you that someone else will call you back, ask when you should call again if you don’t hear back from that person.
