    Safety Tip #10

    Hitchhiking is dangerous! Boys, girls, bochurim, teenagers, women - everyone is at serious risk when they enter a vehicle with an unfamiliar driver, no matter how heimish he or she looks. Under no circumstances should it be permitted, no matter what, no matter when, no matter where.

    Safety Tip #9

    When money collectors coming knocking, do not leave them standing at your open doorway while you fish for cash. Lock the door first, and unlock when you return with the money. Do not allow your children to hand over the money either - the collector is a total stranger to you and your family, and it is only prudent to exercise at leat the minimum amount of caution.

    Safety Tip #8

    Teach your children never to talk to strangers. Even if the stranger looks heimish, talks like Bubby or Zeidy, or claims to know them, your child should never answer without you there.  Warn your kids to always run back to you if a stranger approaches. Do not take this lightly: In a tight-knit community like ours, it is very easy for someone to merely dress the part to gain our children’s trust. You can never be too cautious when it comes to the safety of your child.
