Safety Measure To Put In Place To Help Monitor Your At-Risk Kid

Although being able to spot when your child or teen might be committing crimes or even violent acts could be difficult to gauge, if you have noticed their behavior becoming out of control, you can start to take action by enforcing certain rules at home.

Rules and Punishments: Set ground rules for your kids. Let them know what the rules are and what the consequences are if they break the rules and that they will be enforced. You can also establish a reward system for good behavior to help encourage them to act appropriately and deter bad behavior.

Wireless Alarm System Equipment: If you need to monitor your teen’s activities, consider the advantages of a security system at home. Certain equipment, like motion detectors and door and window contacts will set off an alarm if your child is trying to sneak out of the house when they are grounded or in the middle of the night. Security cameras also offer a way for you to observe their movements throughout your home when you aren’t there. You can even view the surveillance on your mobile devices, like a smartphone or tablet.

Enforce a Curfew: Don’t let teens leave the house after a certain time and insist that they be home by a decided upon time on weekdays and weekends. Hold firm to the curfew times and just like with rules and punishments, make sure to enforce the proper punishments when curfew is broken.

By implementing these rules, which are also safety measures for their own good, you will be able to monitor your teen’s activities more thoroughly and teach them valuable lessons about respecting rules and learning through consequences.
