I encourage those of you who have, are close to, or work with kids to check out the following resources to educate yourselves, friends, and most importantly, the youth in your life, about youth safety:
- 25 Ways to Make Kids Safer is a pdf that you can print out and share with others.
- National Center for Missing and Exploited Children
- National Safe Place
- National Runaway Switchboard
Please feel free to contact me if you'd like more information about youth safety. I don't believe in living an alarmist lifestyle - but knowledge is the ultimate weapon against fear.
