Parents of toddlers often wish they had a dollar for every time they say, “No!” Then again, parents of youngsters, preteens and adolescents probably feel the same way. “No!” is an ageless word that comes part and parcel with parenthood.

Still, this curt, no-nonsense command comes in handy as a toddler is about to chomp on a plugged-in cell phone charger or a youngster with wet hands stands ready to plug in a toaster. As your child's best and most influential teacher, you have much to impart. And electrical safety should be part of your “syllabus.”

But how do you know which concepts to introduce at what age? And what about those concepts? What should they include? Allow Experts in Your Home to shed some light on the subject of electrical safety by beginning with some general tips that can help you every step of the way.

This is one quandary you didn't quite expect as you began to research how to “light up” your home with outdoor lighting.

As you did expect, companies that sell home security systems and outdoor lighting swear that their products deter crime. Their argument seems logical: Burglars prefer to go unnoticed, so keep your home well-lit and stop them in their tracks. Many metropolitan police departments – including those in Los Angeles, Dallas and Chicago – agree with this logic and urge homeowners to enact these and other home safety & security measures.

At the end of every summer, you can usually hear one of two cries emanating from parents and school-age children across America.

One cry resembles an anxiety-laden protest. The other cry sounds distinctly joyous and exuberant. You can decide which cry comes from which person.

It's back-to-school time in America, and for every well-meaning bystander who assures a harried parent that “life will settle down” now that the kids are back in school, an experienced parent knows better: The pace of daily life is more likely to accelerate because kids' busy schedules “rule the roost.”
