Accidents are always going to happen from time to time, that’s just a fact of life. When you have kids, then the chances of that are probably going to double, but things can happen to you as well! Sadly, there aren’t many things that you can do to prevent random accidents from happening, all you can control is how you handle them. If you’ve had some kind of accident at work, then it’s important that you make provisions for what happens if you can’t work or get around for a while. The first thing you may want to do is to hire a personal injury lawyer if the accident was down to someone else’s negligence. You’ll need to think about who can do things lie picking the kids up from school. If your partner’s able to help, then that’s perfect, but you might need to have a friend or family member help out if you find yourself incapacitated for a while.
Few things are more traumatic for a family than a break-in. Your home is supposed to be the place where you feel as safe and secure as possible. Having someone disrupt that feeling of safety can be a genuine shock to the system to you and your family. The most important thing to do is make sure that you can all feel safe again. Make sure that you have any broken windows repaired and locks replaced. Then it might be a good idea to take some time away with your family. The wound is probably going to be still pretty sore and being in your home can bring up a lot of painful emotions for you all.
Few things haunt many mom’s nightmares more than the idea of waking up and suddenly finding themselves knee deep in water. That said, even if the water in your house is barely past your toes, that’s a pretty bad sign! The first thing that you need to do is turn off the main power supply. If you don’t have access to it, then you should call an expert. After that, it’s just a matter of making sure that anything electronic is away from the water and that anything important or easily damaged is away from the water. After that, you need to get a plumber in to make sure that the flooding doesn’t get any worse, and try to get as much air circulating in your home as possible to try out the water that’s already there.
