Being a parent isn’t an easy job. There are any number of dangers that go into child-proofing a house, from electric sockets to child pens to keeping the doors closed at all times. Keeping track of all that can be tiring. Stack on all the other blocks of stress (school, work, socializing) that don’t go away after you have a family, and you have the perfect recipe for exhaustion. Keeping track of all the things that go on in a household can be a herculean task on the best of days. But when small children are involved, all it takes is one small slip-up for something very bad to happen, such as in the event of leaving the door open for just a minute too long. That’s where fences come in. Fences are an undeniable boon for any family– especially one on a budget. And here’s why:
Fence Your Family In
Sometimes, a fence’s job is to keep people in, not out. In the case of children, this is especially true. Even if a door remains open for just a little too long, having a fence limits the radius of the panic zone to the start of your fence’s borders. You can find them quickly and safely, safe in the knowledge that they won’t be able to move past the shelter of the fence, even if they break out of their playpen. Fences are more than insurance against the possibility of them roaming outside, though. Should you decide to introduce them to the great outside, wouldn’t having a fence be good for your peace of mind, if nothing else?
In addition to being helpful for smaller children, fences can serve as the home base for play dates and for your children and their friends to hang out in. Everything from sports to foam darts to crafts can be done in the safety and comfort of your fence line. Your child can create memories there. A fence isn’t just an investment in safety, it’s an investment in childhood, in all that entails.
The wonderful thing about fences is how they provide benefits in so many different areas. Fences keep your valuables safe (not just the children!) and can even be a ward against litigation, especially for those with a pool. It takes a village to raise a child, as they say. The letter of the law very much reflects that phrase for neighbors who have an unfenced pool. Play it safe, for everyone involved: fence up any assets that could be dangerous for people or pets who don’t know any better. But fences do more than just prevent bad things from happening! They can improve the retail value of your house. This is especially helpful for those seeking to sell their house. A fenced home is something that many people seek to buy, and a fenced home is something that makes a house’s value go up, to boot! You can sell faster, and for a higher price, should you ever decide to do so.
