Remember to review safety practices for children who may be home alone after school.
Have emergency phone numbers available for children at home and teach them how and when to call for help. Teach all children that strangers are dangerous, and that if anyone attempts to approach them they should remember to use the three R's for safety:
- R--Recognize that there is a dangerous situation
- R--Resist the situation - RUN, SCREAM, MAKE NOISE
- R--Report what happened to an adult you trust (parents, teachers, police officers)
