The problem of child abuse is very hot and appears often, especially cases of child abuse when attending school alone. This makes parents worried, to minimize this situation, parents need to know the basic rules to help children prevent abuse.
The following article, we will share 6 safety rules to help children to go to school alone without being abused so that parents can guide their children.
1. Children need to have an understanding of prohibited areas of the body
Parents need to tell the child that no areas of the body are prohibited.
Remind children never to touch those areas unless they are sick and parents take their children to see a doctor.
2. Children need to know how to behave politely and with distance
Parents must tell the child, not everyone even though it is a relative who can touch the child’s body.
Help your children deal with each target group. For example, for parents who raise, care for and teach their children, they will be allowed to touch their bodies, except in prohibited areas. Relatives (grandparents, uncles, brothers, etc.) are only allowed to hold their hands, limiting the touching of the young bodies. Acquaintances (neighbors, parents’ friends, etc.) children should only shake hands if they ask, absolutely do not let them touch any part of their body. As for strangers, have to wave their hands if they intend to approach, if necessary, can run.
3. Children need to learn how to behave appropriately with strangers
When going to school on one’s own, if a person asks for a gift or presents, the child absolutely cannot follow or accept anything. If a stranger comes along, run to find the police uncle so he can take you home. Or you could hold hands with a passerby because the crook would think the child met his family and left.
4. Children need to learn how to handle when someone touches their private parts
Many adults think that touching parts of a child’s body is a way of showing affection. Also many people touch, pinch, pinch into the private parts of children openly and casually.
Parents should remind their children that when they fall into the above situation, they must shout out loudly to express their dissatisfaction with such actions. When children scream they will panic and pull back their hands. Children can be adamant in their verbal attitude: “I don’t like being touched, my aunt / uncle / grandparents still do that, I’ll tell the police.”
