Formal safety planning:
Have money saved to escape if needed.
Go outside of the home every day and think about how to escape if necessary.
Tell a trusted someone what is really happening.
Keep an escape bag packed and know where it is in the home if needed.
If possible, keep an escape bag packed with passport, identification and money with a trusted friend or family member.
Know every exit from every location in case of an emergency.
Perhaps the best form of safety planning is prevention. Give children a safe environment to grow and learn. Teach children love and respect at home by showing them love and respect. Know that every life is valuable.
