Why Weed Whackers and Children Don't Mesh Well

I just want to share a short story in an effort to prevent an injury that could be avoided.  One day I was driving down a six lane road when out of nowhere, my passenger side window shattered.  I was startled and pulled into the shopping center to my right immediately and noticed landscapers using weed whackers.  I knew right away that had to be the cause of my window break.  

To this day, I am always reminding my husband and trying to keep our children inside while we are cleaning up the edges in our yard.  Weed whackers can very easily kick up a stone and toss it with rapid speed and strength in any direction, causing property damage or worse, injury.  As a mom and real estate professional, I am always forecasting all possible ways a transaction can go, or things that can happen in an effort to be proactive and not reactive.  I also want people to love their homes, create beautiful memories and keep their families safe and hope you will take this short story as a warning of what could happen while using a weed whacker.  

So for your and your family's safety, please keep children out of site during weed whacking and always wear safety glasses.  Stay Safe!
