Teach Them About Stranger Danger

Sadly, children will always remain the prey of adult predators. It's both infuriating and disgusting that we need to teach our children how to stay safe from child predators. However, doing so could save their lives. 
Educate your child about stranger danger: 
- Keep a respectable distance away from unknown adults 
- Run from cars in the opposite direction from which they're driving 
- Never get into a vehicle with an unknown person 
- Never tell a stranger at the door or on the phone their parents aren't home 
- Ideally, never answer the door when parents aren't home 
- Shout loudly if they're in an unsafe situation The more your child knows about stranger danger, the more protected they'll be. 

Help Them Stay Safe Online

Unfortunately, stranger danger is no longer just a physical threat. With new technology and connectedness has come new dangers. Teach your child about online safety.

Set up passwords and parental locks on computers and other online devices. Make sure younger children are staying off social media. Monitor older children's social media usage, friends, and activities.

It may feel like an invasion of privacy to them, but it is necessary to ensure their protection and privacy. 

Know Where They Are at All Times

We also recommend using cell phone tracking to protect your child and monitor their location at all times. There are cell phone watches you can buy for your child that he or she can wear every day.

They can call, text, or even send emergency distress signals using these watches. Of course, you can also use these watches as a GPS to know their location. 

Establish an Emergency Plan

Finally, we recommend creating an emergency plan for various situations. For example, everyone in the house should know exactly what to do in the event of a fire.

However, there are the things you need to consider like medical supplies and supplements. Check out these choices for medical supplement plans. 

Additionally, you need to establish an emergency plan for when you aren't around. For example, as noted above, your child should have an emergency button on their cell phone he or she can push if they're in danger. They should also know how to work with the home security system.

Finally, come up with a password or code your child can use to communicate danger over the phone if someone else is watching or listening. You should also establish a safety word. If you need to send someone to pick up your child, they can use the safety word to let them know they are in good hands.
