Cyber safety in an issue that parents must take seriously; it is something that must be addressed and can no longer be ignored. All you have to do is to look at National and local news stories about how children and teens all over the country have been affected by cyberbullying. With social media and a variety of emerging technologies and websites it is getting tougher for parents to keep their kids safe.

The first step is to identify and monitor your child’s online activity. Be sure you know the sites they are visiting and the conversations they’re having online.

Sometimes parents don’t even know that their kids are being attacked online. Nowadays most kids have mobile phones that easily link them to these sites. They can send and receive texts often out of the watchful eye of their parents. To make matters worse kids sometimes have multiple social media accounts with different profiles that parents may not be aware of.

While it’s certain that we can’t protect our children from everything we can take precautions. Be sure to check up on current photos they’ve posted. See what kind of activity goes on via their mobile phone. Double check on suspicious numbers and texts. You can certainly find out who the numbers belong to with a reverse phone number search. If you see bullying type comments on your childs social media, track down who that profile belongs to. If you have an address find out who the bullies parents are and where they live.

 With kids spending up more and more time on social media, it makes good sense for parents to know who they’re talking to and what they’re saying so that if cyber bullying does occur, steps can be taken to find out the immediate source.

These days, in many markets, it’s getting more and more difficult to find homes. In many areas listings are at an all time low. Many realtors are great and most will do anything they can to find you that new home you’ve been dreaming of, but what if it just isn’t listed or what if you really want to find out everything you can about a potential property you’re interested in buying.

When you are looking for a home it can be very labor intensive. This is a big decision for most people and so it’s important to know everything you can about the properties you’re looking at. With public records you could find out how much the house was built for or how much it was sold for the last time it was on the market. When was the home purchased? Where will the kids be going to school? What kind of taxes will you be paying?

You could also find out things about the home that will help in your decision making process. If a home was built or purchased somewhere in the 60’s you might want to check carefully on the condition of the bathrooms and kitchens. You also might be able to find out information about the current owner of the home  using property records.

In addition, you can use a search to find out what other properties are assessed at on the same street. You can find out about schools and recent market prices. In this way you can truly compare and shop for the home that is right for you in every way.
