Holiday Home Security Tips

In episode 14 of The Secure Dad Podcast I go over some easy things that you can do to make your home safer this holiday season. Also, I have two new dad hacks that will help you avoid travel meltdowns. For more on helping your kids stay happy on the road, check out my past article: How to Avoid Travel Meltdowns.

One way you can keep from waving a big red flag that you're not home is avoiding the overstuffed mailbox. Enter Hold Mail Service by the postal service. You can request that your mail not be delivered while you're going and then sent to you when you return. For more ways to make your home safer this holiday season, listen to episode 14 of The Secure Dad Podcast.

A Note from Andy:

As 2018 comes to a close I want to say thank you for all of your support of The Secure Dad. This year has been a big one with the release of a book and a podcast. There’s more great stuff in store for 2019.

Since this year has been so busy, I’m taking next week off. That’s a good thing for all of us as you now have the chance to go and listen to a show you’ve missed or one you want to hear again. I’ll be back in January with how we can be safer in the new year.

Be safe this holiday season! Merry Christmas!
