Tips For Your Safety




1. Not everyone is what they seem. NEVER give out your NAME, ADDRESS, or PHONE # to someone on the net.

2. Be careful about agreeing to meet someone. Can you verify who they are and where they're from or where they work? Do you know people who know them who can vouch for them?

3. If you're going to meet in person, make the meeting on your terms. Meet in a public place with plenty of lighting, use your own transportation and consider making it a double date. Parking away from the main entrance where you're meeting is another safe idea, you can't be followed.


4. Don't give out the name of your school or work.


5. If you meet someone from online make sure your parents know, it's in a public place and that an adult goes with you.


6. Trust your gut. If something they say or do makes you feel uncomfortable tell an adult you know you can trust and is supportive.

Ultimately it's using your common sense. Stay safe. You have people in your life who care about you.
