The Super Ten Play-It-Safe Tips for Kids and Grown-Ups!

1. I AM THE BOSS OF MY BODY!

2. I know my NAME, ADDRESS, & PHONE NUMBER, and my parents’ names too. (Don’t forget: kids need to know their parents’ cell phone numbers!)

3. Safe Grown-ups Don’t Ask Kids for Help! (They go to other grown-ups if they need assistance).

4. I never go ANYWHERE or take ANYTHING from someone I don’t know.

5. I must “CHECK FIRST” with my safe-smarts grownup for permission: before I go anywhere, change my plans, or get into a car even if it’s with someone I know. If I can’t check first, then the answer is NO!

6. Everybody’s bathing suit areas are PRIVATE.

7. I don’t have to be POLITE, if someone makes me feel scared or uncomfortable. It’s okay to say NO… even to a grownup, if I have to.

8. I don’t keep SECRETS… especially if they make me feel scared or uneasy. (No adult should tell a child to keep a secret).

9. If I ever get LOST in a public place, I can FREEZE & YELL or go to a Mom with Kids and ask for help.

10. I will always pay attention to my Special Inner Voice, especially if I get an “uh-oh” feeling.
