See Something, Say Something

School In Session, Talk With Your Kids About Safety

49th Street Bail Bonds urges parents to discuss the phrase “see something, say something” with their children. Unfortunately in the world we live in children need to know how to recognize when something is “off” and need to speak up to an adult. Children in elementary school and older should be taught that if they hear or see something such as a classmate threatening the school or another classmate then the child should report it to an adult. The school personnel should create an atmosphere in the school where a child can go and express his concerns without fear of judgement.

Say Something Week

Family members of children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary started a national campaign called Sandy Hook Promise. This campaign has a “Say Something Week” each year. “Say Something Week” raises awareness and educates students and the community through training, media events, advertising, public proclamations, contests and school awards. “Say Something Week reinforces the power young people have to prevent tragedies and protect a friend from hurting them self or others” according to the Say Something Week Planning Guide.

Threats in school…

Children also need to be taught that it is unacceptable to say things such as “I’m going to kill you” or to threaten another child or the school. This includes posting threats on social media. A student was arrested and charged for posting a video on Snapchat showing him holding what appeared to be an Ak-47 with him stating: “don’t come to skool tomorrow”. Because of all of the tragedies that have occurred in the school system, all of these threats are treated as real. This means that even though a child may say he was just joking, he could end up being suspended or even going to jail. Students have been arrested and charged with felonies for threatening to kill or do bodily harm. 49th Street Bail Bonds wants your children to be safe and to know to report something that is threatening. Talk with your kids, encourage them to speak up when or if they see something they think is not right.
