7. Practice snow day safety
When the kids have a day off of school due to the weather, but you still have to go to work, ensure that they’re prepared to stay home alone. Leave meals that they can heat in the microwave instead of using the oven or stove. Teach them not to answer the door to strangers who may anticipate the fact that they’re home alone. Instruct them to wait for outdoor play until you are home to supervise them.
