Nancy McBride: My name is Nancy McBride, I am with The National Centre for Missing & Exploited Children and today we are going to talk about the holidays and safe shopping. I am going to give you some tips and resources that you can share with your children, things you can do to help safe guard yourself and your child during the holidays. Before we do that I want to think a little bit to yourself about what you learned when you were a child about child safety?
Are those messages appropriate today? We will talk about that, we will talk about some of the tools that are out there for you as a parent and I will share with you some of my experience. I have been working for The National Centre since 1990 and I have about over 20 years experience in the field. I have written a number of publications and articles on the issue of child safety, including one on holiday safety. So, let us get started, let us talk about it, how to make it fun and how to have a good time and still be safe.
