Online Safety Tips Help Give Kids a Fighting Chance

10/20/2005:   Teaching children not to talk to strangers is one way to help keep kids safe. This advice, however, isn't always as simple as it sounds. According to Kids Fighting Chance, a nonprofit organization based in Illinois, 2,000 children are reported missing each day. To better prepare children to thwart attack or escape possible abduction, Kids Fighting Chance has compiled free, online safety tips for children and parents.

The safety tips are categorized for children ages 5-11, children 12 and older, and parents. The tips also include escape techniques to teach children if they are being attacked or abducted.

Kids Fighting Chance also conducts free safety demonstrations across the country and sells educational videos that teach children how to avoid dangerous situations and ward off attack or abduction.
