Knowing My 8 Rules for Safety

(from the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention)

  1. I always check first with my parents or the person in charge before I go anywhere or get into a car, even with someone I know.
  2. I always check first with my parents or a trusted adult before I accept anything from anyone, even someone I know.
  3. I always take a friend with me when I go places or play outside.
  4. I know my name, address, telephone number, and my parents' names - and I know not to give anyone this information, unless they are a trusted adult, like a uniformed policeman.
  5. I say no if someone tries to touch me or treat me in a way that makes me feel scared, uncomfortable, or confused.
  6. I know that I can tell my parents or a trusted adult if I feel scared, uncomfortable, or confused.
  7. Its okay to say no, and I know there will always be someone who can help me.
  8. I am strong, smart, and I have the right to be safe.

Online Safety Rules

(from the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention)

bulletRemember, when you are online in chat rooms, anyone can read what you post (type in the computer).
bulletNever get together with someone you meet online without talking to your parents. You never know for certain if people you meet online are who they say they are.
bulletKeep your identity private. Never give out any information that could help someone determine who you are or where you live or go to school.
bulletNever respond to e-mail, chat or instant messages that make you feel uncomfortable. Tell your parents right away.
bulletRemember, on the Internet, even incorrect and misleading information can be made to look official.
bulletTalk with your parents about rules and expectations for going online. Communicating with your parents does not mean you have to give up your privacy.
