As we begin to resume a greater sense of normality and children begin to experience greater freedom of movement, it is a perfect time to talk with your child about how to ensure their personal safety when out and about in Hong Kong. It can be easy for these conversations to not happen as Hong Kong is often seen as being a safe place for young people, day and night. However, it is important that all young people are equipped with the skills and knowledge to keep themselves safe no matter where they are.
Conversations regarding safety need to be ongoing with your children as their independence develops. If you would like some ideas as to how to talk with you child(ren) in age appropriate ways, here are a couple of websites to look at:
