What's the crime like in the area you live in?
Do you feel 100% sure that when you go to sleep at night somebody won't break in? If you feel a little unsafe going to sleep, what do you do to help you feel better or more secure before you allow yourself to drift off to sleep?
150 lb of German Shepard on 21 Acres of ground. No one bothers us. I Sleep well at night.
Crime situation as per the citizens has deteriorated over the last one year. Compared to the rest of the country and other metropolis, it is far better yet.

I do check the doors and windows, leave an outside light on and have a motion detector light above the garage door. So, as you see, I am fully confident of out safety. (I think)

What time do your children go to bed? How long do they sleep? What about naps? I've read that my younger children who are 5 and 7 should sleep for 12-14 hours and that my 12 year old should be sleeping about 10 hours per night. The younger two go to bed around 8 and get up about 12 hours later but...
