Safety Rules

As a kid starts communicating with you, it is time that you can explain some general safety rules to him. Every parent wants their child to be safe, but they also cannot be constantly around them. So the child should be able to differentiate between safe and unsafe situations.

Safety means to stay away from danger. Define what is danger for them through a set of rules. Keep reminding them these rules everyday by constantly communicating with them. Do not use much technical language. Try to keep it easy.
