“Get Home Safely” Rules Now Available in Spanish and English

Because encounters with police have proven deadly in cities across our nation, and, especially so if you are a youth of color, CICC has responded by adopting and using a set of practical rules or guidelines for parents to share with their children and families. These rules are designed to insure that children and youth and anyone else who is stopped by police “get home safely.”

In addition to the English version, CICC now has a Spanish version, Llegar A Casa Seguro, which appears here for the first time.

The 10 rules were initially developed by the Children’s Defense Fund.

Here they are:

Get Home Safely Rules

We have also begun sharing these as part of our parenting instructor training workshops which prepare people to conduct high quality parenting classes in their communities. The rules fit in perfectly with all of the basic parenting skills that are taught in these workshops.

Other organizations, including government departments of health and mental health and entire school districts, have begun distributing these helpful guidelines to all of their clients and constituents.

We urge you to make extensive use of these safety rules.

We also encourage you to comment on these rules.


If you are interested in also bringing a parenting instructor training workshop to your community, click INSTRUCTOR WORKSHOPS to learn about these workshops and how to bring them to your group or community.


The Parent Handbooks for CICC’s three national model parenting programs are also available here. These programs teach a variety of positive parenting skills and ideas to help bring harmony to family life and to promote the development of young people.

There is a version that is appropriate for all families, The New Confident Parenting Program, and two with a focus on families of color: the Effective Black Parenting Program and the Los Ninos Bien Educados Program for parents of Latino children.
