How to Manage Threats, Protect Yourself, Get Help, and More
From the Series USA TODAY Teen Wise Guides: Lifestyle Choices
Safety. In a perfect world, everyone would be safe all the time: in the car, at home, at school, and online. Well, we all know the world’s not perfect. Cars sometimes crash, burglars break into houses, kids get bullied at school, and cyberstalkers and sexual predators prowl the Internet. But that’s no reason to hide in your room and worry. You can stay safe if you use some safety smarts.
This book offers nitty-gritty advice on staying safe. You’ll discover:
• how to recognize and avoid dangerous places and people.
• how to stand your ground against bullies and other bad guys.
• how to defend your home, your computer, and your own body from attackers.
• where to turn for help if you’re feeling threatened.
• where to turn for help after an attack.
Supplemented with articles and information from USA TODAY, the Nation’s No. 1 Newspaper, Safety Smarts delivers solid advice and firsthand stories of real teens facing many of the same types of situations you are. Ready to wise up on safety? Read on!
