Tips for Children
  • Children should be made aware of the dangers of accepting rides from or talking to strangers.
  • Children should be encouraged to talk with their parents if they ever have a problem, not only with a stranger, but also with a friend or relative.
  • Children should know a safe, well-traveled route to take to and from school. Isolated areas should be avoided.

Teenage Babysitters
  • Teenage babysitters should not accept jobs with people they do not know, or who have not been referred by people they know.
  • Sitters should call the police immediately if anything suspicious happens at the house. They should never open the door for strangers.
  • The sitter's parents should be called at the end of the evening to inform them that the sitter will be home shortly.
