Everyday, children all around the
world get abducted by ruthless kidnappers. How safe are your children?
You can't be around your children all the time and there is a limit to
how much is in your hands. Here are ten points that you should teach your
children, to make sure they stay protected.
Make sure your child understands the
concept of kidnapping, and that he stays away from strangers. Your child
should never accept sweets or anything to eat from a stranger.
If you are running into a shop leaving
your child in the car, even if there is a chauffer you should tell your
child to be careful. Make sure all doors are locked and the windows are
If your child is home alone, he should
never answer the door, even to someone he knows. He shouldn't bother to
even see who is at the door, so take your key with you.
If you child answers the phone and someone
asks who is at home, your child should never say that they are alone. He
should, instead, say you are in the bathroom, and should take a message.
Your children should never be given
the liberty of walking out of the house without taking your permission
and telling you exactly where they are. If they are going to a new friends
place, accompany them the first time. Don't send them with children whose
parents you have not met. This is, of course, for younger children.
If they ever get separated from you
at a store, they should just go to the nearest cashier and wait there.
Carry an up-to-date photograph of your
child with you always. If you child gets separated from you in a store,
you can show the photograph around and try to find him. Also, in the event
that your child is missing, the police will be of more help if they have
a recent photograph to go by.
If anyone tries to drag you child into
an alleyway or into a car, he should scream. If he is carrying something
in his hands, like books or marbles, he shouldn't try to hold on to them.
Instead, he should scatter them about.
If a car pulls up alongside your child
and he does not know the driver, he should move away from the car.
