My 8 Rules for Safety

I always check first with my parents or the person in charge before I go anywhere or get into a car, even with someone I know.

 

I say no if someone tries to touch me or treat me in a way that makes me feel scared, uncomfortable, or confused.

I always check first with my parents or a trusted adult before I accept anything from anyone, even from someone I know.

 

I know that I can tell my parents or a trusted adult if I feel scared, uncomfortable, or confused.

I always take a friend with me when I go places or play outside.

 

It's OK to say no, and I know that there will always be someone who can help me.

I know my name, address, telephone number, and my parents' names.

 

I am strong, smart, and have the right to be safe.

Internet Safety Tips

I will not give out personal information such as my address, telephone number, parents' work address/telephone number, or the name and location of my school without my parents' permission.

I will tell my parents right away if I come across any information that makes me feel uncomfortable.

I will never agree to get together with someone I "meet" online without first checking with my parents. If my parents agree to the meeting, I will be sure that it is in a public place and bring my mother, father, or trusted adult along.

I will never send a person my picture or anything else without first checking with my parents.

I will not respond to any messages that are mean or in any way make me feel uncomfortable. It is not my fault if I get a message like that. If I do, I will tell my parents right away so that they can contact the online service.

I will talk with my parents so that we can set up rules for going online. We will decide upon the time of day that I can be online, the length of time I can be online, and appropriate areas for me to visit. I will not access other areas or break these rules without their permission.
