Gang Safety For Kids

When talking to your children about gangs, it's important to not only let them know about the dangers but to also LISTEN to what they have to say about gangs. A gang is basically a group of people who try to control a specific area or location, which they often call their "turf." (That area may be a small section of a neighborhood, an entire city, or even larger.) Gangs are often involved in illegal activities like selling drugs, threatening people, and even violence. Have an honest chat with your child today to help ensure that they stay far away from gangs tomorrow and for the rest of their lives. With a child locator device like the Amber Alert parents can listen in to conversations their child is having to help keep them safe.
