safety tips

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Special Report -

Here’s what to tell your kids to help them stay safe when they’re lost, es­pe­cially at crowded places such as shop­ping cen­tres or cin­e­mas.

“Stay right where you are to give me a chance to find you.” “Call out to me by my first name.” “Stay in an area where there are lots of peo­ple around.”

“If you need help, ask a mum with kids, a per­son wear­ing a uni­form or some­one who works there.”

It’s vi­tal chil­dren know both par­ents’ full names, their home ad­dress and at least one phone num­ber. Tell them to only give these de­tails to some­one from se­cu­rity, a police of­fi­cer or a per­son who works there. With older kids, or­gan­ise a pre­ar­ranged meet­ing point or teach them to find the in­for­ma­tion desk. Visit www.daniel­mor­combe.com.au.
