Tips for Adults

  • Have photos, fingerprints and videos of your kids.
  • Put your phone number on a card in their pocket if going to a crowded place.
  • Have a "code word" that only you and your child know.
  • Teach your kids how and when to use 911.
  • Teach your kids where they can go and whose help they can seek if they feel threatened.
  • Don't drop off your children at malls, theaters, arcades or parks without adult supervision.
  • Choose baby-sitters with care and get references.
  • When going away, let them know how long you'll be gone and where you can be reached.
  • Talk about sex and sexuality. A naive child is more vulnerable to predators.
  • Listen to your children to determine whether everything's okay.
