This article from The Pragmatic Parent website lists seven important rules parents should share with their children to help keep them safe. Some of the tips listed include teaching children to recognize warning signs and unsafe situations and “tricky people” to avoid. Children should also learn to recognize who they can trust if they need help in times of trouble. Parents should also emphasize that children have control of their own bodies, and they are allowed to say no. Discussing feelings and what discomfort is can help children understand what feels wrong and right and tell the difference between a healthy and unhealthy relationship. The Pragmatic Parent website also contains more resources for parents to learn about children’s safety and how to best help children out of unsafe situations.
