We don’t blame you if you don’t want to give out your child’s personal information. Make your own child safety kit by collecting the following information about your child on a piece of paper:
- First, middle, and last name
- Birth date
- Eye Color
- Hair Color
- Unique features (like glasses, birthmarks, braces, piercings, tattoos, etc.)
- Doctor contact information
- Emergency contacts
*Note: You’ll need to use a black inkpad and take a fingerprint of every single one of your child’s fingers. Go to your local police station if you’d like professional help taking your child’s fingerprints. If they’re recorded incorrectly, they won’t do you any good.
You should also include a recent, color photo of your child and a DNA sample—anything from a toothbrush to a bloody bandage.
