Family Safety Plan


As a family, discuss and decide safety rules together, and fill them in the form.  Then post this list on your refrigerator or another prime spot in the home, and review the rules often so no one forgets!  Be sure to talk about them with other caregivers, such as extended family members, babysitters and teachers.

Here is an example to get you started:

  1. __No means no! Kids in this house are the bosses of their bodies and have the right to say no to any touch or interaction in regards to their body or personal space.                                                                      __
  2. __We tell a trusted adult if anyone touches us or talks to us in a way that makes us feel uncomfortable.    ___________________________
  3. __We use the proper names for body parts in this house, including for our private parts.     ______________________________________________
  4. __Private parts are our body parts that are covered by a bathing suit. _________________________________________________________________
  5. __We don’t touch, look or ask to play games with anyone’s private parts.                 ________________________________________________________
  6. __We don’t ask anyone to touch or play games with our private parts. _________________________________________________________________
  7. __Boundaries keep us safe.  We speak up when someone crosses into our “personal safety zone” or makes us feel uncomfortable._
  8. __We respect other’s privacy, boundaries and personal space.____
  9. __We don’t keep secrets.  We know that no grown-up should ever ask us to keep a secret. ______________________________________________
  10. __We speak up and ask questions if we don’t understand a rule, expectation or boundary. ___________________________________________
