School is safer when teens take helpful action

Posted on

Students can do a lot to make the school a safer place. Talk to your teen about actions she might take. For example, she could train to be a peer counselor and help others settle disputes. Or serve as a mentor to a younger student. Encourage her to make new students feel welcome and part of the school. As always, if your teen is aware that a student has a weapon, she should report it immediately.
