Patty Fitzgerald - Safety Ever After

Lots of strategies…  not just “this is what you do in the moment”

Being home alone… 2 tips:

  1. Don't open the door, acknowledge the door –
    In a strong voice: “Who is it?” followed by, “I can’t help you…” and walk away.

  2. Know what to do if there is a fire –
    Get out of the house and use a neighbors phone to call 911


Talking about having an “out” for sticky situations…  Teach your kids language to use and practice the language…

  • Free range in the world is safer than free range online.

  • The internet is a place, not a thing….

  • Safety radar isn’t quite as tuned in….
