Focus Area 4 : Strategies for keeping safe

Parents and Carers can support their child to:

  • practise telling a trusted adult a problem
  • practise saying their name, address and telephone number
  • regularly review their trusted networks to ensure they include people that they know will listen to them and help them
  • practise solving problems in a range of environments, eg use puppet play or role modelling situations and resolutions
  • practise assertive language such as ‘No’ or ‘Stop, I don’t like it when you…’
  • be persistent, especially when seeking help (to keep asking for help until a trusted adult helps them).
