Any worried parent should check out this website. It is full of useful tips and information to give your child about keeping themselves safe whilst they’re out and about. Here below is an example of what the site offers; these are some simple ways to get ‘Street Safety’ messages across to young people.

P.L.A.N

This helpful acronym can help young children to think about personal safety and remember these important safety messages.

P – Prepare – before you go out think for a little bit about where you’re going and how you will get there and back. Tell someone where you’re going and who with before you leave.

L – Look confident – Walk tall and hold your head up. If you look confident, other people are less likely to trouble you. Pay attention to what’s going on around you so that you can see if there is any trouble about and what the best way is to avoid it.

A – Avoid danger – Keep to well lit streets and places where there are lots of people. Don’t take any shortcuts down alleyways or across fields.

N – Never think ‘I’m just being silly’ – If anyone ever does anything to make you feel unsafe, no matter who it is, walk away and tell an adult what has happened.

We can help build your child’s confidence and help them deal with a difficult situation by teaching them good self-defense moves. Visit www.tringmartialarts.com or call us on 0845 0948805 for more information.
