How to Keep you and your Family Safe on a Trip to the Mall

Shopping centres can be dangerous places, but thanks to things like stainless steel handrails, security cameras and mall security, you and your family are safe.

When going to the mall you are exposed and in a high traffic area. Keeping track of your children can be stressful because there are risks of heights, escalators and 5 finger discounts.

Tips to Stay Safe Before you Enter the Mall:

  • Park in a well-lit area. If you are ever nervous walking to your car, ask a security officer to escort you to your car.
  • Do not leave possessions visible in your car. I.e. don’t leave your laptop on your backseat in plain sight.
  • Have your keys in hand when you return to your car so that you have quick entry, and lock your doors once you are inside.

Tips to Keep your Children Safe on a Trip to the Mall:

  • Make sure they are always in your line of sight. This is easier said than done with young children.
  • To ensure your child or children stay by your side you can tie a piece of yarn to your bag or trolley. Then instruct your child that they are not to let go of the yarn. It can easily be turned into a game to keep them entertained and close by.
  • Teach your children to always hold onto the railing when using an escalator or the stairs.
  • Heights make most parents nervous if they are approached by their children. Luckily malls are kitted out with stainless steel handrails to make sure children can see through them but not fall over or through them
