Stranger Danger

Stranger Danger, taught to children usually from pre-kindergarten to second grade, discusses the dangers of talking to people we don't know, what to do if a stranger tries to take you, and some of the lures strangers might use to get a child.

We also talk about the use of a "code" word. What to do if you are home alone and the phone rings or a person you don't know comes to the door, and what you should say to that person is also discussed.

We also talk about 911 and when a good situation to call the emergency number would be. We then go into the important information the dispatcher will ask of the caller, so it is important for the child to learn their full name, address, and phone number.

Teachers might utilize a video called "Eli Sprightly" to convey most of these messages.
