WHO® Parents Safety Tips

Safety Tips for Younger Children & Suggestions for Parents

Throughout the course of WHO®’s age-appropriate curriculum, children will learn attitudes, behaviors and strategies that empower them to take responsibility for their own personal safety. However, the program is only the first step. By following the suggestions below, children will be especially equipped to deal with dangerous, hurtful or frightening situations.

  • Teach children that it’s okay to say “no” to an adult who exhibits inappropriate behavior.
  • If a child reports something has happened, always believe the child.
  • Do not blame the child.
  • Comfort and reassure the child.
  • Do not hesitate to call the proper authorities.
  • Teach children to recognize behavior in others that doesn’t make sense.
  • Do not focus solely on “stranger danger” since 88% of all child victimization is
    committed by someone the child knows.
  • Do not teach young children to keep secrets.
  • Start early and talk openly about sex – define parts of the body and let children
    know he/she has a right to his/her own body.
  • Use simple language when teaching safety rules.
  • Provide adequate supervision.
  • Consider your own philosophy on spanking.
  • If you could possibly be abusing your child, please seek help.
