As an adult you play a vital role in creating safe environments for children. To ensure the safety of everyone, especially those at-risk:

GET involved in activities with your child.

TEACH your child the correct names for their private body parts.

KNOW where your child is and who is with him/her.

ENSURE activities are monitored by more than one adult.

ALLOW a child to be picked up only by an authorized person.

PREVENT abduction by creating a secret password with your child.

NEVER leave a child in a building, on a field trip or in a public bathroom alone.

MEET with a child only in areas visible to others.

ALWAYS monitor access to a child’s activities.

BE ALERT to strangers hanging around.

MAKE sure enough adults are involved in the programs in which your child participates.

TEACH your child what to do if someone makes them uncomfortable.
