Face It Friday: Playing It Safe

Playing It Safe
Tips for safe sleepovers and time with friends

Sending your child off on their first sleepover or hosting your teen’s friends can come with lots of questions — what are the planned activities? Who else will be home? How can I reach the other parents? What if there’s an argument?

The Kosair Charities’ Face It Movement has released its newest resource just in time for summer, Playing It Safewhich includes information on what kids should know for their safety, tips for parents and caregivers to be prepared to drop their child off at a friend’s house, and conversation starters on details to share and questions to ask to ensure a safe and fun experience. This new tool includes an accompanying magnet to hang on the refrigerator as a reminder of the safety tips and to prompt conversations at pick up or drop off.

Learn more from the Exploited Children’s Help Organization and University of Kentucky’s Dr. Christina Howard here.
