Extractions: Establishing a system of "family rules" about personal safety is a good way to teach children the difference between safe and unsafe situations. Many families already have rules about bedtime, TV watching, chores, and the like. By adopting rules about personal safety, parents can teach good habits through reinforcement and repetition without generating excessive fear. The following suggestions for personal safety rules can be incorporated into a family routine. Inside Rules Children should know their complete home address, telephone number including area code, and parents' first and last names. If children are old enough to answer the telephone, they should be taught how to dial 911. Practice with the receiver button taped down. Children should be taught not to reveal any personal information about themselves or their family (their name, address, school) over the phone or to a stranger without a parent's permission. If children are home alone and answer the telephone, teach them to say that the parent cannot come to the phone right now and take a message, or ask the person to call again later.

Extractions: Angel: I have two boys aged 15 and 12. I think my biggest fear for them is when they get older and start to go out socialising. I often find myself worrying that in the future they will end up getting into fights. I know it will be a few years until they go out drinking, but should I start to discuss this with them now? I feel that they are responsible, especially the older son. He doesn't give us cause for concern at all at the moment, he has a couple of good friends but he doesn't hang around in gangs. So really I'm asking what advice can you give me about keeping them safe when they get older? Inspector Tim Bonnet: This is a valid concern. The key things are to make sure that your children understand which places are and are not safe. A good tip is to look at local papers and see where problems occur and advise your sons to avoid them. If they have good sensible friendship groups they will probably do that anyway as very few kids look for trouble. I have two sons aged 17 and 15 and they understand that there are plenty of places they can go safely but others that are best avoided. Always ensure that they tell you truthfully where they are going and, if they change their plans, that they let you know the change. And, if they hook up with a friend who worries you, talk them about that and advise them that this person may not be a good friend.

Extractions: Filtered Search Engines We understand that some parents would prefer their children do a filtered search to limit the materials which are accessed. In the library, one can choose to use a filtered computer to search the Internet; below we provide options for when you are at an unfiltered terminal, or at home. The sites listed below are filtered search engines. The library does not guarantee the effectiveness of these search engines; no filtering software is guaranteed to block all unwanted material. Filters may also block material that is desirable, and that is protected under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. In most cases, you will find the information you are seeking. If you do not, use another search engine that does not employ filtering software. TPPL also has searched for sites that are child-friendly. See Kids on the Web for TPPL-recommended web sites. Computer Use Agreement We encourage parents to teach their children safe behavior on the Internet just as they teach them to deal with the dangers present on the street. Parents can help their children by setting reasonable rules and guidelines for computer use at home and at the library. Child Safety on the Internet has links to sites that provide information about setting appropriate guidelines, and keeping children safe while using the Internet.
Extractions: There may be a time when your child encounters bullying behavior - when behavior goes beyond good-natured and occasional joking. The hurt can be in the form of verbal abuse (inflicted through words, such as name calling or taunting) or in the form of physical abuse (kicking, shoving, fighting, or taking property). Perhaps an even more damaging form occurs when there is an attempt to socially isolate a child. The behaviors usually occur repeatedly and/or over an extended period of time. Many adults will tend to focus their energy on the bully's inability to celebrate, or simply co-exist, with diversity. We wonder what s/he may have against a certain belief, faith, financial state, size, shape, color, or other trait of a child, and often go to great lengths to discipline and/or re-educate the bully. Psychologists tell us that bullying behavior is learned early on, and that these children typically grew up in a home where they were either a bully or a victim. There often is no mutual respect or sense of healthy boundaries for these individuals. That is why they truly need intervention, and the earlier, the better. That being said, I think we almost always miss the other opportunity before us as guiding adults. This is our chance to use an experiential 'life-lesson' while our child is still living safely with us at home. Children who are bullied for any reason, including being vegetarian, will experience similar thoughts and feelings: embarrassment, shame, fear, anger, and anxiety, a mix which usually tends to 'turn up the volume' on the natural desire to fit in and be liked.
