How to Keep Your Kids Safe From Sex Offender Crimes

Everyone needs to keep their kids safe from sex offender crimes. There is no way to tell a sex offender just by looking at them. They may be working at local stores, your neighbors or even volunteering at your child's sports games. Never leave your child alone with anyone unless you know the person is very safe.

CHECK THE REGISTRY - Check online for sex offender registry lists for your area. It should tell you where the sex offenders live in you area, what their crimes were and show a photo of the sex offender. If some of the information is missing, contact your local police station to find out the information. Once you know where the sex offenders live, do not contact them, just avoid them and make sure that your children avoid them. Only have of the sex offenders are caught and put on sex offender registry lists and only half of the ones required to register actually do register, so that means that the register list only represents 25% of the sex offenders that are out on the streets.

DON'T ALLOW YOUR CHILD OUT OF YOUR SIGHT - Why risk your child's life or well being by allowing them to be unattended? It is unfortunate that our world is dangerous, but we have to face reality. Do not leave your children unattended or with adults that you do not know very well. Get to know all of the adults in your child's life. If someone is not very responsive when you are talking to them or they avoid eye contact with you, you should be suspicious. Also be suspicious of adults that seem to go out of their way to spend time alone with your child. Do not trust someone just because they are your relative or belong to your church, never leave your child with someone that you do not know and trust thoroughly.

TALK TO YOUR CHILD - Remind your child that there are bad people in the world. Let them know that no one should touch them or their private parts.

You should also remind your child about the possible dangers of kidnapping and how bad guys may use something such as a kitten or candy to lure them into their car. Even though it is an uncomfortable subject it is important that you regularly remind your child of the dangers.

Let your child know what to do if they become separated from you in public or in a large crowd. Tell them to go to someone that works there or to woman with children for help.

Keep your child safe from sex offender crimes.
