An Omaha mother has been forced to have some difficult conversations with her two children after their home was burglarized. Chantalle Ferguson has been through this before and has advice for all of us, not just single moms.
"I had to have a talk with my 7 year-old son and say, 'If you see the door open, don't go in. Let mommy go in first,' which is not something you want to explain to your kids at 7 and 4," said Ferguson.
Among the measures she suggests all of us take to protect ourselves in case of a break-in while we're home are items you might not think of. "Car keys with an alarm. If you hear something, press that alarm right away. It's going to freak somebody out."
Ferguson's south Omaha home was also burglarized earlier this year when a thief broke through the side door of her exterior garage.
