4 Steps to Help Protect Your Children also Stranger Danger Video

1. Children should be on the lookout for situations or actions that make them feel uncomfortable, rather than certain kinds of people. (”Stay away from strangers” is a popular warning used to prevent child abduction and exploitation, however many children are harmed by “acquaintances.”)

2. If someone tries to take you somewhere, quickly get away from them and yell “Someone is trying to take me away!” Say “NO!”, then go and tell.

3. If someone follows you on foot or in a car, run to a “safe place.” A safe place is where there are other people around…the home of a neighbor or friend or a store, not a wooded area or unoccupied building.

4. Parents should always carry pictures of their children (taken within the last six months) and should take time every day to make a mental note regarding the clothing being worn by their children.
