Strangers & Tricky People

Strangers & Tricky PeopleStrangers & Tricky People

It’s not what someone looks like, it’s what they say or want to do with a child that makes them unsafe or “tricky.” And that is anyone who tries to get children to break their safety rules or hurt their body.

It really helps to role-play situations with your child so he/she will learn how to react properly.

  • Always check first with your parents if someone wants to take you somewhere or give you something. If there is not a safe adult around to ask, the answer is always no.
  • Never go anywhere with someone you do not know.
  • Never go into someone’s home without a parent’s permission.
  • Do not let strangers get any closer than two arms lengths away so they cannot grab you.
  • Never approach a car that is asking you for help—adults will ask other adults to help them if they have a real problem.
  • Never open a door for someone you do not know.
  • Never tell someone on the phone you are home alone.
  • If someone grabs you, kick, scream, bite, and draw attention to the situation. Yell, “This is not my parent!”
  • It is okay to say NO to an adult if they make you feel scared or uncomfortable.
  • Never keep secrets if it makes you feel uneasy. Adults should not ask children to keep a secret.
  • If you get separated from your parents in a store, go to the checkout counter and ask for help. Another idea is to find another adult with small children and ask them for help. That comes in handy in an outdoor area or mall.
