The 4 Rules to Stay Safe


DON'T GO OUT ALONE There is safety in numbers and this rule isn't just for little kids, it applies to everyone. We are always safer if we take a friend, sister, or brother

ALWAYS TELL AN ADULT WHERE YOU’RE GOING Letting someone know where you’ll be at all times is smart. If you’re ever faced with a risky situation or get into trouble, your family and friends will know where to begin looking for you.

IT’S YOUR BODY You have the right to reject unwanted and inappropriate attention such as teasing, touching, and bullying.

SAY NO IF YOU FEEL THREATENED, AND TELL A TRUSTED ADULT If someone – anyone – touches you in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable, you have the right to say no. Whether it is peer pressure about sex, drugs, or doing something that you know is wrong, be strong and stand your ground. Don’t be afraid to make your feelings known.


Internet Safety


Do you want to know how to stay safe on the Internet?
NetSmartz is an Internet safety resource from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

The goal of NetSmartz is to help you make responsible decisions online and in real life. This is accomplished by:

  • enhancing your ability to recognize dangers on the Internet
  • encouraging you to report victimization to a trusted adult
  • supporting and enhancing community education efforts
  • increasing communication between adults and children about online safety
  • enhancing your ability to understand that people you first "meet" on the Internet should never be considered your friend

Plus NetSmartz is really fun!!!!
