When parents send their children for after school programs, they take it

for granted that the child is safe. But since the number of children 

participating in these activities has increased, it is necessary to look 

into safety issues. 

Children are vulnerable when they are outside the classes. While going or 

returning, they should know the safest route to take. Many kids hang out 

with their friends just after these classes. Find out 'danger zones' from 

your neighbors and make the children aware of these. 

The child has to know how to handle emergencies. It is better to discuss 

various scenarios with your child. Tell her what she should do in case the 

class is suddenly cancelled. Show her the first-aid kit at home and make 

sure she knows whom to call in an emergency. Post any important contact 

information in a place that is easily accessible to the child. If the 

child will be alone at home, discuss a few unexpected things with her. 

Tell her to use the safety chain ALWAYS. 

Relay on your neighbors and friends when needed. Let your child know who 

can be contacted at times of emergency. Ask your child to check in by 

phone. Above all, always tell the child to be in a group. Visiting toilets 

all alone or going home via isolated streets must be avoided.
