So, before your teen is attacked or finds her surrounded by problems, it is your duty as a mother, as a parent to teach your daughter about the best safety tips, especially when alone at nights.
It Is Must To Carry a Mobile Phone
The cell phones are of utmost importance in the case of emergencies. If at all something gets fishy, ask your teenager to call upon the emergency numbers such as you or the cops and ask for the aid. Also tell them to share the cell numbers of the friends accompanying with them.
Ask Them To Roam In A Group
It is always on the numbers. The more the better! If there are many friends moving out together then the chances of people harassing is less. And if they move with 2-3 people there are chances that people bothering them will be more. It is always good to stay in a group and then move out at night.

It is always responsibility of parents to assure that children avoid drinking and smoking up weed. The age is not correct until they turn an adult they might have the liberty to do so, else they must always avoid it. This might lead you to some severe accident as being teen you do not know to handle yourself as you are out of your own control.
Do Not Interact With Strangers
There might be instances wherein strangers would provoke you by passing on lame comments. You must always avoid the moment and pass by as if you do not get bother.
Must Never Get Into The Car With Strangers

Trust Your Intuitions
You have to be aware about your intuitions. If you find something making you uncomfortable and uneasy then it is the time you trust your inner signals. This can always save you from getting into dangers.
