TOP TIPS FOR TEACH­ING YOUR CHILD ABOUT STRANGER DAN­GER

Your Baby & Toddler - - Talking Point -

NEVER

Shout, show anx­i­ety or ner­vous­ness when talk­ing about safety. Panic in front of your child if he shares some­thing neg­a­tive re­lated to his safety.

AL­WAYS

Speak clearly, openly and as nat­u­rally as pos­si­ble.

Re­main calm. As­sure your child that you love him, will lis­ten to him, be­lieve him and sup­port him

should he tell you about any in­ci­dent re­lated to his safety. En­cour­age your child to talk to you and ask ques­tions about safety.
