How to Protect Children

Child safety is a serious subject, but that doesn't mean you can't have an enjoyable time talking about it with children. The Blank Children's STAR Center provides resources that can help your family have a conversation about personal safety. More information on this can be found HERE.

It's More Than Just Stranger Danger

The Second National Incidence Studies of Missing, Abducted, Runaway, and Thrown-away Children classified kidnappings as either family or non-family abductions. More information on this can be found HERE

Protecting Children is Everyone's Job!
