When I found out I was pregnant, I knew I didn’t want to raise my child in the city, then crime rates were going up, as well as I didn’t want to worry every time my child was playing or going to university, however i was afraid to walk down the town streets as well as wondered if I was going to make it dwelling from work.
I knew most of my worries were unfounded, but now I had a modern life to look out for.
I considered the crime rate in every section before deciding… My mom lived in Elgin, IL, as well as he told me it was a pleasant section for teenagers as well as families. My spouse would not be too far from the city, as well as he would have an simple commute. Mom lived on the outskirts of the city, as well as I started doing my research. I found out that the crime rate was lower than most cities, but it was still on the low side of average, then the statistics said there were an average of 12 crimes per 1000 people as an average town crime rate. This still seemed high to me, but I had to not just feel of me as well as the baby, but my spouse, and he not only had to travel back as well as forth to work, whether it was snowing as well as 30, like in January, or scorching, as well as 90 in August. I gave a lot of thought to where I wanted to raise my child. The largest draw of living in Elgin, IL, was that my mom was there. I could get a job, as well as my baby would have his Grandma all morning. I would not be handing him off to a different babysitter that I didn’t know if he was a criminal, or one of his family members were criminals.
