Stranger Danger!

It's one of the most important lessons your child will learn.  There are good people and bad people in the world, and it is crucial that they can make that distinction and are comfortable telling someone when an adult treats them inappropriately. Here are a few basics that could help you help your child in a difficult situation.

What is a Stranger?

     A person you don't know.

     Some strangers know your name and your parents' names.

     Some strangers are older children or teenagers.

     Women can be strangers too.

     Strangers can be well dressed and drive nice cars.

     Not all strangers are bad, but it's best not to take chances.

Sometimes adults hurt children or touch them in ways that they shouldn't.  Here's what you should do if this happens to you!

     Say No!  You can so "No" to adults who want to hurt you or touch you.

     Get Away!  Remember, most adults are good people and will help you if you are in danger.

     Tell Somebody!  Tell your parents, teacher, police officer, or someone you trust about what happened to you.
