What You Can Do To Protect Your Child
Children are our Nation’s most precious resource, but as children, they often lack the skills to protect themselves. It is our responsibility, as parents and guardians, to safeguard children and to teach them the skills to be safe.
This pamphlet is designed to help you talk to your children about how to protect themselves against abduction, exploitation, and painful experiences. Every home should teach children about safety and protection measures.
As a parent, you should take an active interest in your children and listen to them. Teach your children that they can be assertive in order to protect themselves against abduction, exploitation, and uncomfortable situations.
And most importantly, make your home a place of trust and support that fulfills your child’s needs. Together we can protect our Nation’s children by teaching them to be smart, strong, and safe.
