It is important that all parents establish a safety plan with their children when they are very young. The plan may vary based on the child's unique situation, but there are some safety rules that apply to all children. A child safety plan will provide guidance by telling the child where to go, what to do, and how to react in a potentially dangerous situation. Additionally, all parents should remember to address what to do if the child gets lost.
