Make your child Safety Smart Tips on personal safety

Safety isn’t expensive, it’s priceless. ~Author Unknown I recently came across the quote above and it instantly struck a chord with me. We are constantly bombarded by messages on the television about threats on individual safety, which makes us wonder at how safe our children are. Helping them understand the simple rules of safety, in a calm manner is something that works most of the time. A child may be explained to calmly about the existence of people who may want to hurt or harm them. While we are explaining to them our demeanour needs to be calm as If we sound anxious when talking about safety issues, they will pick up on the anxiety that could make them scared and ultimately lead to fear. The important fact of the matter is that instead of instilling fear within them, we need to create awareness.

Thank you for the feedback. We must prepare our children for the worst, even though we do not want them ever to face such situations.

Good information... I would like to share an incident that I heard through word of mouth... a child who was leaving from school, was waiting for her parents to come and pick her up. But some other person came to the girl and said her parents have sent him to pick her up from school. The girl immediately asked the person what is the code word.. and when the person did not understand nor reply, the girl ran back to the safety of school and the school arrested the person who was trying to kidnap the girl. I think we too should learn from this incident and teach our kids a code word which only the parents and the child should know. This incident happend in Canada.
