Keeping kids safe

When preparing for the holidays, it’s important to keep an extra eye on your children.  Remember to:

  • If possible, leave small children at home with a trusted babysitter when shopping.
  • Teach your children to go to a clerk and ask for help if they are lost from you.
  • Teach them to stay with you at all time when shopping.
  • Tell them to avoid strangers and to inform you immediately if someone is bothering them or making them uncomfortable.
  • Never let your kids make trips to the restroom without an adult.
  • Children should never go to a car alone and should never be left in a car alone.  
  • It only takes a second for a thief to steal your car with your child in it.
  • Teach children their name, address, and phone number to give to police or mall security.
