Do’s and Don’ts for Child Safety

  • know your telephone number, address, and your parents’ full names: for example, Mary or Joe Smith… not just “mom” or “dad.”
  • let your parents know where you are and who you are with. Play with friends, and remember, there is safety in numbers.
  • tell your parents who your friends are and where they live… especially new friends and adults you meet.
  • tell your parents if someone talks about sex or love.
  • tell your parents if someone touches you or asks to take pictures of you. Secrets about bad touches are bad secrets. Tell your parents, teacher, doctor, or some other adult you trust if someone asks you to keep a bad secret.


  • accept rides from a strangers or get in their car.
  • open a door to a stranger… Never open the door to anyone when you are home alone.
  • give information over the phone to someone you do not know.
  • tell anyone you are home alone.
  • go into a person’s house without your parent’s permission.
  • play in isolated places.
