How can a child know which adult to trust? AMERICA'S MOST WANTED: AMERICA FIGHTS BACK answers that question and many more on its website AMW.com. In light of the recent attempted kidnappings in New York and Connecticut, AMERICA'S MOST WANTED has teamed up with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) to offer 10 tips for developing good family rules and keeping children safe. The following tips can be found on AMW.com:
Family Code Word - Pick a word or phrase that only you or your children know.
Don't Wear Your Name - Don't give a stranger a chance to confuse your child or fool him into thinking that she knows him.
Always Take A Friend - Kids are safer in numbers.
Don't Get Too Close To A Stranger's Car - If a stranger in a car asks you for help, it is OK to say no. Tell your child: Adults don't need help from kids.
Learn To Scream - The last thing a predator wants is to attract attention. They don't want to be caught.
Keep Current Photos And Video - If your child is ever missing, recent photos and some home video can make all the difference.
Trust Your Feelings - Make sure your kids know it's OK to trust their instincts.
Get Away � Fast! - At the first sign that things aren't right, your kids need to get out of the situation as fast as they can.
Home Alone Rules - Tell your kids to call once they are home from school safely and remind them to always lock the door behind them.
It's OK To Say NO - Empower your child to say NO when he or she senses danger.
