The Red Flags & Safety Rules for Kids are really helpful.Tips for families:
Create a code / password that only the child and their parents know. If someone else tries to pick the child up and doesn’t know the family password, the child will know this isn’t a safe person to go with.
Have a “Safe List” of people that your family will allow your child to be picked up by and go home with. This is a good supplement to a “code word” in case of an emergency--and a close friend or relative is directed to pick up the child without the chance to learn the family password.
