With a new school year about to begin, back-to-school safety is on all parents’ minds. My number one safety tip for parents is “talk to your tweens and teens about safety“, because most likely they assume that their possesions are safe at school. It is important that parents talk to their children of all ages about back-to-school safety, don’t just assume that they know how to keep their belongings safe.
The older the kids get, the more safety issues are involved, because these days tweens and teens may bring valuable possesions to school such as an expensive smart phones, laptops, cameras and mp3 players. Talk about where to keep the gadges, make sure that they lock their lockers, and most importantly make sure that they do not share their locker combinations. Being a teenager can be fun, and there are likely other more pressing issues that the safety of your teenagers belongings, so make sure that he or she realize that taking care of their gadges is their responsibility.
Back-To-School safety is all about prevention, because with a little knowledge and awareness safety problems may be able to be avoided completely.
