“Stranger Danger,Stranger Danger” I repeated to my 5 year old neighbor. She had no idea what I was talking about . Her mother told her that she was going to the shop,3 hours passed she the little kid was becoming worried. She asked me if I was going to the shop , if yes , she wanted me to look for her mother .
The child saw a man passing and ran to her gate , she said “Excuse me,excuse me,are you going to the shop ? If you see my mommy,tell her to come home please!!” I ran out of my house to warn her about the dangers of doing this . When I saw her she was in a vest and she was not wearing her shorts . I became enraged because I could foresee the dangers in calling out to stranger . At the time she was being supervised by her 17 year old sister. I warned her sister that this was incredibly dangerous.
Parents , please remember to warn your kids about the current occurrences of missing children . There must be a way for us to have these conversations with kids . Long gone are the days of avoiding difficult discussions with children.
