Staying Safe While Playing Pokémon GO

It’s the newest craze! But with everyone staring at their phones (rather than where they’re walking) there are some safety things to keep in mind.

Our friends at Kidpower have put together a bunch of important safety tips for caring adults to consider when young people (and we adults as well) play Pokémon GO.

From Recognizing the Possible Safety Problems (Including Crossing Physical Boundaries and Looking Like Trouble) to Cyber Safety and Awareness concerns, the idea of having a Pokémon GO Safety Plan is a smart one.

We highly recommend you check out the article here. Those skills and many more are covered in these three books by Irene van der Zande, the Founder of Kidpower:
