Don't Talk to Strangers
It's a big bad world
Children, for the most part, think that the world is a delightful place to be explored. Life is particularly enjoyable as everyone they meet tends to cosset and pamper them. Some children are temperamentally shy or wary of strangers, but generally they are trusting and friendly, responding to any positive overtures made to them.
We all know it's a big bad world
out there. Every day the newspapers are filled with gruesome stories of
killing, kidnapping and abuse. Parents worry about letting their children
out of their sight. But you can't always protect your children from every
possible danger. Another point that parents should keep in mind is that
children do not necessarily have to leave their homes to be mistreated.
It's hard to believe but in many cases, child abuse and neglect often happen
in the home itself and family members or close friends have been found
to be the perpetrators. However, such cases are the exception rather than
Wary, but not scared
Given this scenario, it's no wonder
that parents are filled with trepidation. They realize that their children
will have to move out from under their wing sooner rather than later. It
is important that they do not transfer their fears to their children so
that they become scared of their own shadows, afraid to go out and face
the world. The need of the hour is to make children street smart and savvy,
not scared. The world should be a beautiful place for them, not one where
there is a bogeyman around every corner and where every stranger is a villain.
