Tiny terrors

It can be truly amazing how much chaos a small child can create. A jam sandwich forced into your DVD player, spilled paint or perhaps the occasional broken window can all be costly to repair.

Home insurance is invaluable should you find yourself in this position as you really don't know what the little rascals are capable of! Parents of toddlers can fork out a lot of money to repair damage to their homes and across the UK the cost was found to be into the millions. The most damage is done to paintwork and wallpaper forcing some redecorating. Furniture comes next on the hit list followed by broken ornaments and household goods.

The main culprits are the one to five year olds compared to six to ten year olds. Of course there is gender stereotype related to the destruction with little boys doing more damage than little girls. Also across the United Kingdom it was the Scottish children who really excelled themselves when it came to causing expensive problems, giving their parents repair bills of £625 on average.

Yet still, many households across the UK don't have adequate cover? Westhill Insurance appreciates home insurance is a necessary evil, that no one really wants to have to deal with.
