Safety Rules for Kids
Keep them out of harm’s way by teaching them these safety rules.
1. Memorize important details
Know their parents’ complete names and contact information. Doing so will help them in the event of any emergency. Have them memorize these details.
2. Do not open the door for strangers
If your kids are old enough to be home alone (although still not encouraged), teach them to keep the doors locked at all times. and that it is important to always know who is at the door before letting them in. If they are not familiar faces, keep the door closed.
3. Be careful when crossing the street
Younger kids should have an adult with them when they cross the street. For the older ones, teach them to use the pedestrian and to look both ways before crossing. More importantly, they should put gadgets down when doing so as these serve as distractions.
