Child Safety

Protecting our children
Protecting our children

We do not want to terrorize our children. Nevertheless, it is very important to consistently teach our children good safety habits.

Away from home children should:

  • Be aware of what is happening around them and remain alert for potential dangers.
  • Always walk and play in groups...criminals like to isolate their victims
  • Never approach vehicles on the street or accept a ride from someone they do not know.
  • Be cautious and keep a safe distance (two giant steps) when approached on the street or playground by adults they and their parents do not know.
  • Run to the nearest populated area and yell for help if they think they are being followed or feel they are in danger. If someone reaches for them, yell "youíre not my Mother/Father."
  • Avoid alleys and secluded areas when walking and playing.

    At Home remind children to:

  • Make sure all doors are securely locked.
  • Know how to operate the security alarm system.
  • Never open the door to someone they do not know.
  • Never tell someone at the door or on the phone that the parents are away.
  • Know how to call 9-1-1 if they feel threatened when they are home alone. Instruct them to give details to the police telephone operator and remain on the line until the police arrive.

    Do not overestimate your childís ability to recognize danger or protect himself/herself in a confrontation. Parents should know the whereabouts of their young children at all times and be very cautious about allowing them to play unsupervised.

    While the threat of abduction is frightening, experts tell us that child abductions by strangers are extremely rare. Children are far more frequently molested by someone they, and many times their parents know. Teach your children that their bodies belong to them and that they have the right to say no to anyone--even a teacher, relative or close friend--who tries to touch them in a way that makes them feel uncomfortable. Let them know that they should tell you about anything that happens to them which makes them feel frightened or uneasy, and that you will be supportive and protect them. Trust your childís instincts and be alert for signs of abuse such as emotional changes or unexplained anxiety or hostility toward a baby-sitter, relative, or friend. Do not force your child to hug or kiss adult family members or friends. Teach them they have the right to refuse unwanted physical advances.

    Parents should be watchful for suspicious persons hanging around schools and places where children play. If you see something that makes you feel uneasy, donít hesitate to call 911.
