Do's and Don'ts of Child Safety

Tips To Remember

If a stranger approaches you and tries to grab you this is when you should fight, scream, and kick. Do whatever you can to get away and to a place where there are other people to help. Always remember to trust your instincts. No one has the right to touch you if you don' t want them to.

It takes courage to talk to someone about your secrets and it is important to make sure someone hears you.
