• Parent Guide to Personal Safety for Youth



    Because of the exceptional popularity of the KidSafe Virginia parent guides, the Governor’s Office for Substance Abuse Prevention (GOSAP) recently worked to revise, update, and combine the previous parent guides into one guide.  The purpose of the new publication, Prevention Comes First:  Parent Guide to Personal Safety for Youth, is to educate parents about some of the potential safety threats children may face and to assist parents in communicating with their children about personal safety. 


    The topics covered in the guide include: fire safety, internet safety, driving safety, bullying, gangs, inhalant abuse prevention, and underage drinking.


    Copies of the parent guide may be downloaded from the GOSAP web site:
