Teach kids to protect themselves at home

We consider our homes to be safe places for our children. But being home alone can pose risks for children. Here are a few tips to teach kids that will help keep them safe when you are not with them at home:

• Never answer the door if alone.
• Do not invite anyone in the house without the permission of a parent or babysitter.
• Don’t tell anyone on the phone that your parents are not home. Instead tell them that your parents can’t come to the phone, and take a message.
