SUMMER SAFETY TIPS FOR CHILDREN
Attend your local Safety Fair together.
Play and ride bikes in groups for safety.
Stay in parent approved areas.
Wear a whistle when alone and If you are in trouble blow it.
If you are lost while camping, blow it and sit down in the shade to wait!
You will be looked for!
USE THE LIGHTHOUSE WALK,
While walking keep an eye on what is going on around you
in front, back, and side to side. If you ever sense danger,
Run to a safe place, with a safe person and tell!
NEVER wear two ear buds while walking
You need all of your senses! Drop one while out of doors.
Compromise, safe and sound!
Stay away from cars parked with people inside.
DO NOT OFFER YOUR HELP TO AN ADULT YOU DO NOT KNOW.
This is just a trick, responsible adults find other adults to help them.
Wishing you all a safe summer!

What Should You Do?
Helping Children Protect Themselves in the Twenty-First Century
2010 Tate Publishing
By Melinda Reynolds Tripp
Most of these people are good and have good behavior.
Teach your child what good behavior looks and feels like.
A very few people have bad behavior,
Teach your child to be aware of what people say and do.
It is the behaviors of the people around us that we need to be aware of.
Teach a child to use their intuition, be aware of behaviors.
If something sounds or feels wrong……icky……get away from those kids, teens or adults and go to a safe person to tell.
It is very important for your child to be grounded in the knowledge that if ey re kicking and screaming the good people who are EVERYWHERE, will help them!

How many people don’t even know that many women and children are being held captive in America until
Someone is found, saved, or in the case of the three women held captive in Cleveland,
Someone able to save themselves!
It will be very instructive for me, as a safety educator to learn how the girls were each kidnapped,
How they were held, and what kind of physical and mental torture (control) they were subjected to.
I feel for the the officers and investigators over the last decade, who missed the signs.
Screams in the night….perhaps rape, or childbirth?
A reported women crawling naked through the back garden……but never found.
This will be a really horrible, heart wrenching case,
not unlike the abortionist killing babies in Philadelphia.
The hope I have now is that all of these men will be prosecuted, and given sentences so tough,
that cases across the country will suddenly be reopened. Remember Jaycee Dugard?
Just maybe parents will read about these girls and decide that they could teach their own children
that a few people have bad behavior, we steer clear of those people, and stay aware of our surroundings, keeping ourselves and those we love safe.
If a child is confronted by bad behavior- say NO, GO and TELL!
I am so grateful for the courage of these women, and all who continue to be held captive in our midst. I pray that their courage and strength will lead them all home.
