Home Security, Self Defense and Peace of Mind
My wife is known for always putting herself last. She gets up in the morning before everyone else in the house, makes coffee and breakfast, and gets the kids ready for school. Once all of us have left for the day, she cleans the house, goes to work and then returns home and makes dinner for us all. I help her with these daily activities as much as I can, but let's be honest …. she is indispensable. She's always putting herself last.
Home security and alarm systems used to come last as well. They just weren't at the top of our priority list, and we'd never fallen victim to a fire or burglary. We didn't know how comforting peace of mind could be.
Unfortunately, that all changed. My wife came home in a panic one day last year. She told me a stranger had approached her at the gas station asking for money. Then, she was pretty sure he followed her home. We called the police and gave them the man's description and the description of his car. They said they would not be able to take any action unless the man actually trespassed on our property.
I was able to talk my wife into taking the time to enroll herself in a self-defense class. These classes gave my wife the tools she needed to help protect herself in the event she encountered this situation in the future. She had a new confidence in each step she took and the peace of mind that comes along with knowing you can defend yourself in most situations.
These classes also changed the way she observes things, and she's much more aware of her surroundings. She's the one who suggested we get a new wireless ADT monitored home security system and take home security off the back burner. We called our local Authorized ADT Dealer, Protect Your Home, and a few days later they came and installed it. Our family now has peace of mind. Thanks to the self-defense classes, my wife is safer when she is away from home – and thanks to ADT Security, she has never felt safer when she is at home.
For more information on self-defense classes in your area, check with your local police department or martial arts studio.
