Say No, Go, and Tell!
by Author MelindaTripp

What safe kids do.

The plan, deceptively simple, will change and grow with your child.

Say No!  No to tricks, No, to bad behavior, bullying, bad choices........

GO! Literally,  break-away, leave.....get to a safe place with a trusted adult,

Tell!  Telling is very important! 

No matter how upset or scared a child may be. 

Using descriptors is not always covered by parents, while teachers will use it for writing, they may not

use it for describing specific people, things such as vehicles, areas,  and situations.

A child using a good description may allow authorities to hone in on  a particular person,  vehicle or place.  Ultimately

one child may be able to change the life story, of another child, saving them.....just by telling.

The plan grows with your child, giving real life  story examples of these real life super safety heroes.
