Education & FlexiCare Lessons S.M.A.R.T. Safety Awareness.
Choosing the best school education & flexible care program is one of the most important decisions you, as parents will have to make.
Home Alone (lesons for children to learn)
Parents need to review all the safety tips with your children.
• One of the realities of today's society is the pressure for children to stay home alone after school until the parents return from work. Whether they are 6 or 16, school age children need to be supervised by responsible adults.
• For decades, children were taught to stay away from "strangers." But this concept is difficult for children to grasp and often the perpetrator is someone the children know.
• It is more beneficial to help build children's confidence and teach them to respond to a potentially dangerous situation.
• Talking to children about safety also increase their understanding of the need for practicing safe behaviors and be aware of dangerous situations.
• There are many issues, potential risks and dangers that parents should consider before deciding your children's readiness of taking care of themselves at home.
• Firstly, consider your children's level of maturity. The ability to understand and practice safety skills, is also affected by age, educational, and developmental levels.
• If your children are old enough and responsible enough to be home alone without adult supervision, be sure they understand the 'Safety Essentials.'
• Give clear instructions about what to do if there's an emergency. Leave a list of trusted people that children can contact. Make sure that your children are happy about the arrangements and confident about being left alone.
Children's Safety Essential (Important lessons for children)
• Never display key openly. Always tucked it in a safe place.
• Check in with a neighbour or call parents at work after arriving home.
• Never go anywhere without parents' permission.
• Keep all the windows and doors locked.
• Do not let anyone into the house or open the door to speak to stranger.
• Never let anyone know you are alone at home.
• Do not enter the house if the doors or windows are open or broken. Get help from the neighbours or the police.
• Never take apart or try to fix electrical things yourself.
• Call the emergency line 999 if you are in an accident. Give your full name and address and briefly state the problem.
• Let someone knows where you are going and when you will be back before you leave, so everyone knows where you are.
• Always take a friend with you when you go out. It is safer to travel in numbers
• If you are lost in a supermarket, stay where you are and ask for help from uniformed store worker or security guard. Never leave the supermarket.
• If someone in a car comes by and asks you for direction or help, turn around and walk away. Do not go up to the car. Adults should ask other adults, not children. Tell your mom or dad or a trusted adult.
Who are stranger offenders? (lesson for children)
• Stranger offenders are people who abduct and abuse children. They view children as weak, helpless, defenceless victims who can easily be manipulated to full fill their needs.
• Bribery, flattery, treats and request for help are common tricks they use to engage children.
• Most children are lured into a seemingly innocent situation with someone who acts like a "nice" person.
• There is no way to anticipate who these offenders are or what they will do.
• Some stranger offenders will 'hang out' in places where they have access to children, fast food restaurants, arcades, malls, movies, mini-markets...
• The best defence is to keep unsupervised children away from strangers. This is first and foremost the responsibility of parents.
• Your children also need to be educated, to learn rules that will reduce their risk when adult efforts to protect them fail.
How Do Bad Strangers Trick Children?
Teach children to be aware of the following tricks ...
• Help Trick:
A stranger asks you to help them find a lost pet or maybe asks you or directions to get somewhere. This may be a trick, so if a stranger asks you for help, turn and run in the other direction as fast as you can and tell an adult you know as soon as you can!
• Emergency Trick:
A stranger says that there is an emergency in your family and your mom asked him to get you. The stranger may even say that your mom got hurt!
But you don't have to think about it — just run in the other direction as fast as you can and tell an adult.
• Bribe Trick:
A stranger says they have some money, candy, a video game to give to you. Remember, these gifts are really bribes to get you to come closer. Instead, run in the opposite direction as fast as you can and tell an adult you know as soon as you can!
• Animal Trick:
A stranger is holding a puppy or kitten or other animal, and invites you to pet it. This is a trick, run the opposite direction as fast as possible and tell a trusted adult.
Teach Children to be Street Smarts
There is no set of guidelines that can offer total safety. What parents should aim for is a sensible approach that will help your children avoid trouble. Tell your children to be careful on the streets. Your children will learn from you, to be alert!
• Walk with a group of friends or stay near other people.
• Stay on the busier areas. Walk in the middle of the sidewalk.
• Avoid abandoned or empty buildings. Never take short cuts.
• Alert to what is around them, listen for footsteps and voices nearby.
• If they see someone doing something wrong, walk the other direction.
• Do not display their cash, expensive jewelry and clothing.
• Make sure that Parents (you) know the route they are taking every day.
• Use the same route everyday going to and from school.
• When being followed by a vehicle, quickly turn around and walk in the opposite direction.
• Never talk to strangers! Tell them they don't have to answer a stranger.
• If they are in trouble, shout loudly to attract help.
• Notice stores along the way so that they can go into one of them if they need help or they need to use the phone in an emergency.
