Keeping your children out of harm’s way
As parents, seeing our kids get hurt physically or emotionally is not a good feeling. Which is why it’s very important to know what to do in order for us to keep our kids safe, and for our kids to know what they can do to keep themselves safe.
- Always keep an eye on your kids whenever you’re outside.
- Instead of avoiding strangers, teach your kids to know what types of behavior to look out for. They should keep away from adults who give them free gifts, asks them to keep a secret, touches their private parts, or asks them to come with them, then those are people that they should avoid.
- Make sure that your kids inform you, a teacher, or a trusted adult if someone hurts them.
- Look out for strangers that seem out of place in your child’s school, or daycare. Informing authorities of a suspicious person can help protect other children from harm.
- Your children should know where to go or whom they should go to in case of any emergency, or in case they need help.
