11 safety rules for kids that you must knowPictolic
Every parent is most concerned about the happiness and welfare of his child. This is especially true when the child is still small and can not independently take care of himself. What mom and dad should teach him how to behave with strangers, who can and who cannot open doors, with whom to be friends with and who — no.
Below we prepared for you 11 simple rules that will help protect children and to avoid many unpleasant situations.
A great rule for children and for adults. It is best to always be in the company of and try to avoid situations where you need to go somewhere alone.
Your child must know the numbers of all emergency services from police, ending with the gas service. Explain to him how to call them from a mobile, if the need arises.
Before going with a child in a public place (e.g. a large shopping centre or on a festival), be sure to take a picture of it. If your child is lost somewhere, you will photograph the clothes in which he came.
The child should know that being at home alone, he in any case should not open doors to strangers. You can even come up with a special password door knock, known only to you and your daughter/son.
You should know who, where and why is your child, though it does not matter what age is he. However, it is not recommended to extract from him the information by pressure or blackmail. It is best to establish a trust relationship in the family. Then the child himself will tell you about their plans.
Create a password that will be known only to your family members. If ever the child will approach a stranger (for example at school) and say that it is "from you", let call him this secret phrase. Give it only to people I trust.
Again back to the topic of strangers. Explain to your child that communicating with strangers is strictly forbidden, especially if they offer somewhere to take them or to get in the car. In such cases, the child should immediately flee or call for help.
Teach the child contact numbers and your home address. He needs to know them well, if necessary, to be able to inform the police (for example, if you get lost and remain without a connection).
Explain to your child how he should behave online to avoid the risk of account hacking and theft of personal data. Basic rules: set the passwords, not to disclose confidential information to strangers, not to visit potentially dangerous sites, use antivirus.
Often even adults suffer from the fact that you can't deny someone a request. Explain to your child that he can and should say No if something doesn't want.
This is the Golden rule that every kid should know! Never take nothing from strangers, even if the gift looks too attractive and expensive.
