Stranger Danger! Safety for Your Children
Post by: Gina Stone
It doesn’t take a widespread disaster to affect your personal safety. Crime is everywhere, and and you need 2 BEE Ready to protect yourself in every day life. Personal safety is not only about you, but the safety of your children as well, whether they are teens or toddlers.
Teaching children about their personal safety can be difficult. It is one of those discussions that needs to take place, but you don’t want to scare them. You can order a free child safety kit from Polly Klaas Foundationwhich includes advice on how to approach the safety talk.
A nicely done Safety Now Report by WDSU on Stranger Danger safety on the play ground. I believe every parent should watch this to understand how children see and view what a “Stranger” is. http://youtu.be/v8o9I3D5ka4Microsoft has also issued some good information about Internet safety for children, including the use of social media sites and what information you should never give out online, and cyberbullying.
