Given this knowledge, you might consider bolting down that safe in if your kid's closet. This isn't a guarantee, of course, that burglars with time on their hands won't go digging in that room of the house, so maybe consider constructing secret hiding places within your kid's room.
The Reader's Digest (annoying) slideshow includes other ways to increase your home's security. Most of these you probably already know about, such as making sure a neighbour or friend removes fliers tucked in your door when you're on vacation, but you might learn something new, like checking the bathroom window latch after you let a service worker use your bathroom.
