OVERALL CHILD SAFETY TIPS for STRANGER DANGER

  • Know your full name, phone number and address.
  • Never be alone off your property. Stay with friends – even when going to public lavatories.
  • Always get your parent’s OK before going anywhere – and phone your parent often.
  • Walk only on routes to school and elsewhere that your parent has scouted out with you and pointed out safe places along the way. Andnever walk through parking lots or take other shortcuts.
  • No headphones or hand-held games to distract you from what’s around.
  • If someone comes near you, don’t speak to him other than saying, "Go ask an adult.”
  • Never go near someone in a car or truck. Just run the other way – toward other people.
  • Cute animals and candy are just two tricks used by bad people to get near you.
  • Always get your parent’s OK before accepting money or a gift.
  • If you see someone doing something wrong, go the other direction.
  • Do not have your name printed on anything visible to strangers.
  • Give up your valuables if you’re robbed by another kid – never fight back.
  • Never get money for any school or club project unless your parent is with you.
  • Don’t trust anyone who tries to get you to break your parent’s rules.
  • Tell your parent about places or people that make you feel unsafe.
  • Have a secret code word for emergencies. If you phone your parent while you’re with someone who scares you, you can say the code word to secretly let your parent know that you need help.

IF LOST – CHILD SAFETY TIPS for STRANGER SAFETY
