The FBI kids safety tips

The FBI website has some great safety tips for kids. One tip is really easy and something we did not think about when teaching our daughter: come up with a safety word only parents and a child would know. Then, if any stranger comes up and tells a child to go with them, because they are a friend of a parent, a child can ask for a safety word. If that stranger will not respond, a child should run away fast. We will definitely come up with a safety word with our daughter. http://www.fbi.gov/fun-games/kids/kids-safety
