Well, it’s that exciting time of year again when the kids go back to college. When our little birds leave their nests that have been fashioned with all the finest parental comforts, and off they go to their dorm rooms and unwashed clothing and cafeteria foods. While our children are relatively safe on college campuses, there are some things still that we as parents should be concerned about.
Between 2005 and 2007 a third of all crimes committed on college campuses were robberies according to the Department of Education. This number accounts for over 15,000 of all reported criminal activities. On top of that the things that a criminal would look for in a student’s dorm room are things your son or daughter would need replaced immediately. Items such as smart phones, tablets and laptop computers are easily taken but not always so easily replaced, yet urgently needed.
