Using your notes from the lesson, talk about what children should and should not do in public places.

Through my in-depth studies, I can summarize some of the advice that children are required to use in public or private places such as restaurants or any place where an audience or a group of people gathers to avoid embarrassment or repercussions that require intervention from a social perspective.

Through the first part I will explain what children should do  in public places :

1) Prepare your child Before going to a crowded place with your child, use simple language to make her understand that she should always stay close to you. Make her aware of the fact that if she wanders away from you, it will be very difficult for both of you to find each other.

2) Never let go Always hold your child’s hand in crowded places. When moving along with the crowd during occasions such as a temple festival, it is prudent to carry him in your arms or on your shoulders (would also give him a better view!). During times like being late for an event, you may tend to walk faster. And, being unable to keep pace with you, your child can get left behind and easily lose his way. So, never let go of his hand.

3) Decide on meeting points If your child is old enough, then discuss with her and agree upon a prominent spot where she should come and wait for you, in case she gets separated. Make sure that the meeting point is easy for her to see and reach. When you find that your child is missing, immediately go to the meeting point, so that she doesn’t need to wait there for long.

4) Seat child on the cart in supermarkets A supermarket is full of people and things that can attract your toddler’s attention. While you are busy scanning the shelves, your child may wander towards his favorite toys section. If you don’t have your partner around to keep an eye on him, make him sit on the baby tray of the shopping cart. Just ensure that the seat is clean and free of any sharp or pointed edges. Some parents make the mistake of leaving the cart with the child seated in it to pick things up from the distant shelves. Don’t do this. Child and cart may both disappear!

5) Beware of stranger danger  Teach your child to stay away from strangers. Tutor her as to whom she should ask for help in case she wanders away from you. Tell her that in such situations, it is safe to seek help from a security guard, a policeman, or any other parent with children. Make her learn your name and phone number, so that she can tell this information to the person she is asking for help. You can even place a card with your name and contact number in her pocket. Teach your child to stay away from people who are alone, both men and women, who may offer her sweets, toys, etc.

Children should not do in public places :

1) Make fun of someone’s appearance. It’s easy to joke about the way someone looks, but it’s unkind. People are way more than the sum of their outward parts. If getting a potential laugh comes at the expense of a person’s appearance.

2) ease someone about the way they speak, move, or act : My son has a boy at his school who has Tourette’s syndrome, so he has a difficult time controlling his physical tics. I have told my son I am proud of him for not making fun of this child, and explained to him that we must treat those with physical or mental challenges respectfully.

3) Cheat. : It’s not okay to cheat in school. It’s not okay to cheat in sports. It’s not okay to cheat to get ahead. Period

4) Use physical force other than in self-defense : I try to teach my children that they must exercise self-control over their actions. Yes, they will get angry at others, at themselves, or at life when things don’t go as they had hoped. They must never, I tell them, express their anger or make a point by getting physical. Never.

5) Act disrespectfully toward authority : “You can disagree with me,” I tell my children, “but you must do so respectfully.” At home, and in life, my children must listen to higher authorities. That doesn’t mean their opinions and beliefs lack value, it just means that in the hierarchy of life those in authority are due respect. That includes parents, teachers, coaches, and bosses.

6) Act wasteful and entitled : I want my children to treat their own property, and the property of others with respect. As they get older, I want them to help pay to replace items they lose habitually or treat cavalierly. Have you ever seen this sign posted as you enter a store, “You break it, you buy it”?

7) Do illegal activities. My children will get to choose whether or not to drink when they reach 21. Before then, it’s illegal. Same with doing illegal drugs or breaking the law while driving.
