10 Safety Tips for Kids

 

1. If you are in public place, and you get SEPARATED from your parents, don’t wander around looking for them. Immediately go to a checkout counter, the security office, or the lost and found. Find a person in charge that will help you locate your parents.

 

2. You should not get into a car or go anywhere with any person unless your parents have told you that it is okay.

 

3. Leave items and clothing with your name on them at home. If someone you don’t know calls out your name, don’t be fooled or confused.

 

4. It is safer for you to be with a group of people when going places or playing outside. Always use the "BUDDY" system for safety.

 

5. If someone tries to take you somewhere, quickly get away and yell, “I don’t know you!”, “This person is trying to take me away!” or “This person is not my father (mother)!”

 

6. Never leave school with someone you don’t feel comfortable with or know. Always check first with your parents or another trusted adult.

 

7. If someone you don’t know or feel comfortable with tells you that there is an emergency and they want you to go with them, say NO! Check with your parents before you do anything.

 

8. If you want to change your plans after school, always CHECK FIRST with your parents. Never play in parks, malls or video arcades by yourself. Make sure you have your parents’ permission, and that they know where you are going to be.

 

9. Never accept money or gifts from anyone until you check first with your parents.

 

10. And most importantly, TRUST your feelings. If someone makes you feel scared or uncomfortable, get away as fast as you can and tell a trusted adult. You deserve to feel safe!
