First, have them call once they have gotten home and locked the door behind them. Have them create a schedule so they aren’t just sitting at home watching television until you get there. Teach your child these points of contact and what to do in emergency situations:
  • how to dial 911
  • your address and phone number
  • the name, location, and phone number where your mom or dad works
  • the name, phone number, and address of a trusted neighbor
  • the name, phone number, and address of another emergency contact person, such as a grandparent or family friend
Arming your kid with this information will keep them safe and give you peace of mind.
