I was so pleased to read your article!
The children who were being accosted did exactly the right thing. They did not hesitate, they had a plan. Say No!
To the bad behavior, Go and Tell!
These are the very kids I was hired when they were in elementary school to teach safety. I retired from Hilmar Elementary school to teach safety assemblies after writing the first national circular and inclusive safety curriculum for children ages 5-13.
For years dubbed, the “Safety Lady” I would arrive to give assemblies to students in Stanislaus and Merced County Schools. When the monies for assemblies dried up, I went to a publisher with my quest to keep America’s children safe. The first publisher leaped at this, and the book was published in 2010. It is available for every parent, teacher and school,
Teaching progressively 5-13 yrs olds to not be fooled by bad behavior when they are young, and to not fall into
The traps of the internet as they are growing……
A good safety plan is easy to remember, it is about BEHAVIORS

“No one is allowed to touch you where
Your bathing suit covers”
“No, Go and Tell!”
“Kick , scream, make a scene!”
” Never go to a second location!”
” Use the lighthouse walk!”
The attempted abduction in Hilmar in
1994, prompted this career, and now
I reap the benefit of hearing how three teens ran, and told.
I am very proud!
We cannot stop all bad behavior, but we can teach children to observe behavior and react quickly and stay safe.

Sincerely,
Retired teacher, advocate, speaker,
author, safety blogger,
Melinda Reynolds Tripp

Safe and Sound- Attention Parents Who Have Kids Listening to Music!

  • Have your child access the situation before putting in earbuds to listen to their music
  • Green light, use of two ear-buds, in a safe situation, example , in their rooms, ¬†with family home.
  • Yellow light, on alert someone or something may need your attention, example, walking to, or from school..drop one earbud allowing for safe and sound……a compromise.
  • Red light, drop the music for now, you need all your senses to get to where you are going safely!
  • It is not safe to drive or ride a bike with music earbuds in. ¬†Start by being a good role model.
