Target Proof Your Kids

Here are some things you can do...

Ensure that your children never walk to or from school alone.

Make sure your children always use the buddy system.

Show your children safe places to go if someone ever approaches them while they are walking home (with their buddy of course).

Reinforce the importance of the Buddy System!

Reinforce the importance of the "Buddy System"!

Teach your children that if a car ever approaches them, to run in the opposite direction that the car is facing, and always tell a trusted adult as soon as possible

Ensure your children know that it is not their responsibility to help adults. If an adult needs help finding something, or getting directions, they should ask another adult.

Teach your children to trust their instincts. If something makes them uncomfortable, take their concerns seriously.

Ask your child's school to help!!!

Ask your PAC to bring Put Kids First into your school to speak.

If not a policy now, ask your school to have younger students go to the washrooms in pairs.

 

Dangerous Offenders Act
Do you think the Dangerous Offenders Act needs to be changed?

Maybe it just needs to be applied! How many D.O.s are declared per year? Not enough! Click to read an important article from CBC Canada. If you're tired of repeat sex offenders that are admittedly extremely dangerous to our children, then please send this letter to your member of parliament. It could make all the difference in the world. Share it with your family and friends

Here is a letter to print off and send to you local MP. If you are unsure of who your local MP is you can use this link to the MP directory to find out.

Safety Tips For All Ages
When youíre out walking, itís safer to use only one headphone. This makes it easier for you to hear approaching footsteps or a car.

Walk against the flow of traffic, you will be able to see approaching cars.

In parking lots, try not to park beside vans without windows, or whose windows are blacked out.

Remember, always be aware of your surroundings and whatís going on around you, and trust your instincts

Internet Child Abuse
There are more than 100,000 child pornography sites on the internet

The innocent victims of Internet child abuse cannot speak for themselves. But you can. With your help, this evil trade can be eradicated by simply lighting a candle of support. The more candles that are lit, the more powerful our voice becomes. This petition will be used to encourage governments, politicians, financial institutions, payment organizations, Internet service providers, technology companies and law enforcement agencies to eradicate the commercial viability of online child abuse.

Please light your candle at www.lightamillioncandles.com
