School has started for some, like us or will be starting soon for others. Getting the kids ready with all their supplies and clothes is a lot of work. But we also need to go over some safety tips as well. I found a great resource for Back to School Safety Tips.
We have a few of our own that we go over some of these several times through out the year, but as school starts it’s important to go over them again.
Teach your children your phone number and address. My five-year old rolls her eyes at me but can recite it perfectly.
I made sure to tell both of my children that only certain people can pick them up at school or the bus stop if mom or dad are not available. And of course we have a secret word that those people know about.
My twelve-year-old does not have a house key because my husband is home most of the time. But my son knows whose house he can go to if we are not home.
Check out the other tips at the site above.
What safety tips can you share?
