Going back to school is a very exciting time, but it's also a great time to talk about safety at school. This includes the usual, who to trust, what to do if you see someone with a weapon, or harming someone, etc.., but it also includes the safety of your belongings.
When my oldest daughter was a Freshman in High School, she made the mistake of not locking up her book bag in the gym locker room, and unfortunately came back from PE, to find that her bag had been ransacked, and her birthday money stolen! It was a sad way to learn that not everyone in school can be trusted.
My best advice for back to school is to leave valuable items at home, bu,t if your child must bring money or Ipods, etc...,with them; make sure they lock it up. Master Lock is a great way to keep it locked up!
