How to Keep Your Child Safe While at Home
Make sure your children know how to reach you at work or on your cell phone.
Teach your children how and when to use 911 and make sure your children have a trusted adult to call if they’re scared or have an emergency.
Instruct children to keep the door locked and not to open the door to talk to anyone when they are home alone. Set rules with your children about having visitors over when you’re not home and how to answer the telephone. Children should be taught how to take a message without revealing that they are home alone.
