Keep Your Kids Safe! Show Them This Checklist of Important Safety Tips
From Cub Scout, Tiger Cub Handbook
- If you are in a public place and get separated from your parents (or authorized guardian) do not wander around looking for him or her. Instead, go to a police officer, a checkout counter, the security officer, or the lost and found area and quickly tell them that you have been separated from your parent and need help.
- You should not get into a car or go anywhere unless you have your parents' permission.
- Adults and older children who are not in your family should not ask children for help: They should ask other adults.
- You should use the buddy system and should not go anywhere alone.
- Always ask your parents' permission before going into someone else's home.
- No one should ask you to keep a special secret. If this happens, tell your parents or teacher.
- If someone wants to take your picture, tell your parents or teacher.
- No one should touch you on parts of your body that a bathing suit covers (unless it is your doctor while treating you or during a physical exam), nor should you touch anyone else in those areas. Your body is special and private.
- You have the right to say "no" to anyone who tries to take you somewhere, touches you, or who makes you feel uncomfortable in any way.
