Stranger Danger for PARENTS [Part 3 of 4]

Last week, we met at MM@BT and discussed ways we as kids, parents and community members could keep children in the community safe. Check out the below list of ideas we have for PARENTS so they can keep their children protected from stranger danger:

STRATEGIES

  • Education from day one (age appropriate) for your kids:
  • Create a ‘safety password’
  • teach children about “safe touch” – what is and is not an OK touch
  • know where your children are always
  • teach our kids to communicate, describe and observe surroundings/people
  • Ensure your children know their own address and phone # and parents’ names
  • teach our kids to trust themselves
  • trust your instincts as a parent when deciding who is and isn’t safe for your child.

HELPFUL LINKS FROM A COMMUNITY MAMA

Thanks to the Bannock Lady for sharing these helpful links with us – as parents we recommend you sit down and check these links out with your relatives and your own children so you can begin the discussion on how to best keep your child safe.
