3 Ways to Keep Your Family Out of Harm’s Way - Sophia Belnap - Blog

3 Ways to Keep Your Family Out of Harm’s Way

The primary conflict of life is survival. Survival looks different in the modern era when danger is relatively scarce, but it’s survival nonetheless. The rules may have changed, but getting through life takes a lot of hard work, planning, and preparation. Here’s what you need to know to make sure your family is taken care of.


One of the most important ways that you can protect your family is by ensuring their physical survival, and healthcare is the foundation of that. There are many potential injuries and illnesses that can put you at risk, and you only have so much control over what you’re exposed to. Therefore, you’re going to need some kind of medical attention at some point. The problem is that it can be exorbitantly costly for many, leading health insurance to become a necessity for most people.

Health insurance can itself be a big ask for families living paycheck to paycheck, but there are alternatives. Taking a look at online health insurance quotes, you can compare and contrast your options and weigh them against your needs to find the right coverage for you and your family, for starters. Thanks to government assistance, some families may qualify for free health insurance coverage, although this has the downside of not being as widely accepted as other types. Ensuring that your family is covered is essential, but it might not be in the budget. Luckily, you can change that.

A conflict just as essential to the human experience as survival itself is the need for capital. Money truly does make the world go ‘round, and making enough money to meet your needs is a constant priority. Holding a job to establish a reliable income is the first hurdle you have to overcome, but many people simply don’t know how to manage their assets. With some strategic thinking, you can essentially stretch your dollars to make sure you’re never without your basic needs while you simultaneously grow the value of your wealth to bankroll more expensive long term purchases.

You’ll want to start by making a budget, and doing so will require some research. Take note of your existing spending habits and compare them to the average person online, for starters. This can give you an idea of where you can and need to reduce spending, from there, you can set the parameters for how to spend money moving forward. This will allow you to not only cover all of your needs, but also contribute toward a savings account. The widely accepted rule is that 20% of your income should go into savings. By committing to this, you ensure that you always have money in reserve in case the unexpected happens, but it also helps to finance long term goals like home ownership or starting a business.


Another issue to contend with in modern life is security. A human concern for time immemorial, nothing about modern life prevents others from wanting what you have. Therefore, the need to protect yourself from your neighbors is a very real one. While this may not come to bear for you, personally, the odds are that the security of the average home establishes a “safe enough” status quo. For that reason, it’s important to consider the security of your home. The most essential step here is to make sure that your doors and windows all have reliable locks, and you’ll also need to check doorknobs periodically for the loosening that naturally occurs.

More advanced security measures aren’t unwarranted, either. A security system featuring cameras, sensors, and alarms is just as potentially important. Likewise, lockboxes in which to store valuables is a simpler, more cost effective way to make sure that a potential burglar can get away with less. The right balance of security depends on the specific and unique circumstances of your household, but it’s definitely something to account for. In some smaller, more rural towns, however, leaving one’s door unlocked isn’t uncommon, and this leaves people vulnerable.
