Safety Tips for Older Children

  • Don't go out alone. There is safety in numbers. This rule isn’t just for little kids, it applies to teens, too.
  • Always tell an adult where you are going. Letting someone know where you’ll be at all times is smart. If you’re faced with a risky situation or get into trouble, your family and friends will know where to find you.
  • Say no if you feel threatened. If someone - anyone - touches you in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable, you have the right to say no. Whether it is pressure about sex, drugs, or doing something that you know is wrong, be strong and stand your ground.
