intuition and to be able to tell you when something is wrong.

number, and where you work or can be contacted. Teach them how to dial
911, make collect calls and how to use a pay phone operator.

know that adults do not ask children for help nor can they threaten
them. They should never approach an unknown car or go anywhere with an
adult they do not know.
