10 Steps to
Making 2005 Safer for Your Child
by Carl Ellis
1. Listen to your child/children. Pay attention to what they are telling you or trying to tell you. Far too often parents are too busy or distracted to listen to what their children are trying to tell them. Don't make this critical mistake!
2. Teach your child what her phone number and address are. This is crucial for basic child safety.
3. Make time for your kids. If you share your time with your children, you will create the trust it may take for them to open up to you and share something that might be bothering them.
8. Tell your children that you love them. Explain that there is nothing that he or she could do or tell you that would make you stop loving them. This allows children the freedom to tell you anything that has happened to them that they may be embarrassed or ashamed of. Predators know that they can trick a child into believing that she or he is at fault for being molested. Sadly, very often this trickery works and children blame themselves completely for what is happening to them.
9. Keep several current color pictures of your child on hand if an emergency situation arises. Usually a picture from the shoulders up works best. Complete the “Child ID” Form and keep it in a safe place.
