CHILD SAFETY TIPS – PARENTS MUST TALK TO THEIR CHILDREN
Keep the child protection and safety as your top priority in the list – Being Safe highlights the ever-increasing necessity of every parent and the need of the hour is to educate children about staying safe while providing them with the necessary tools on how to do this.
No parent imparts scary what-ifs, but there is a possibility that our kids might need guidance on how to stay safe in life-threatening situations. But despite our best efforts, there is no place that is 100% safe. Being alert is the only option.
The reality is that our children may witness a crime despite our best of efforts to keep them safe. But we can follow few rules to stay alert.
1. Never Send Your Children Alone
Come what may, parents should never send their kids to shops or tuition alone. Always encourage your kid to walk in groups or at least with one friend, sticking to lanes only they’re familiar with. Instruct your child to avoid shortcuts at any cost through quiet places like empty parking lots, malls, lanes or gardens.
2. Keep Gadgets Out Of Sight
Ask children always to keep material possessions like mobile phones and iPads out of sight. Theft may be the intention of the potential criminal if not rape who may cause serious physical injury to the child.
3. Riding in cars with strangers is a strict no-no
Warn your child against getting into a car with a stranger who might use the opportunity showing an emergency. Tell your child that even in emergency you would never send a stranger to pick them up.
4. Beware of the friendly stranger
If approached by a stranger you must teach your child not to talk any topic with a stranger regardless of how friendly they may seem, and if that stranger tries to grab them ask them to fight back, shout very loud, kicking and screaming that the person is not their parent, thus alerting passers by.
