Every parent wants to protect their children and family to the best of their ability. Since E was an infant, My husband and I have taken precautions to protect our daughter.
We have covered electrical outlets, made sure cabinets are locked and we keep potentially harmful items out of reach. We also baby proofed in other ways such as keeping child gates and by using edge and corner guards where needed. When E was born, we even purchased a brand new smoke and a carbon monoxide detector for our apartment.
We didn’t get much use out of those outlet covers, safety gates, and cabinet locks when E was immobile but when she started to crawl then walk, we were glad to have them!
Most importantly, other then protecting E’s person, I want to protect her identity. Identity theft can be a nightmare at any age but can be even more devastating for children. Identity thieves can use a child’s identity to take out loans and lines of credit. They can also use a child’s information to establish an identity. Identity theft for a child can result in that child being denied for loans, for cars or even college college late in life. That child can also be denied employment, a drivers’ license, or the ability to obtain housing and/or utilities!
I appreciate that LifeLock offers identity theft protection for the whole family.
