1. Safety Rule #1 Know Your Name, Number And Address:
Your kid may be small but it is important to teach basic contact details like your and your partner’s name and contact number. Your kid should be able to share your contact number with someone in case of an emergency. Also, knowing where home is and any nearby landmark is also important. Help your kid memorize these with regular practice at home. Also, help your kid memorize a backup number to call, like a grandparent, uncle or aunt.
2. Safety Rule #2 Do Not Eat Anything Given By A Stranger:
You need to teach your kid about the dangers of eating food that is given by a stranger. No matter how tempting the treat is, if it comes from a stranger, your kid should not eat it. Teach your kid that it is dangerous to accept food from anyone. Ask them to politely refuse in case someone is offering food without your consent or in your absence.
3. Safety Rule #3 Do Not Climb The Fence:
Your kid may be playing ball and suddenly it bounces off to a space inside a fence. Teach your kid never to try and retrieve something by climbing through a fence. If something like this happens, your kid should ask the help of a grown up, but never go near a fence.
4. Safety Rule #4 Do Not Walk Off The Yard Alone:
Similar to the point above, your kid should know that it is not permissible to walk out of your yard alone. If your kid needs to go out for anything, you or some known adult should be accompanying your kid at all times.
5. Safety Rule #5 Playing Or Experimenting With Fire Is Not Allowed:
Whether or not you are at home, your kid should know that it is absolutely not allowed to play with fire. Only if you are around and have given your permission can your kid be near fire. Make sure all fire outlets are safely out of your kid’s reach.
