Every parent likes to think that they have taught their children about safety and not talking to strangers, but how well do our kids really know what’s safe and what’s not safe? This man set out to do a social experiment to see if parents were right about their children when they said that their kids knew their safety rules. The results were quite alarming. Check it out:
So, if a stranger went up to your kid with a puppy, would they go with them?
The real answer to the question may scare you, but it doesn’t have to. It’s important that you talk to your kid about safety more than just once, in fact, they should be reminded every day. Other ways that you can make sure your kid knows their safety rules is to act out a scene or quiz them from time to time. An easy way to help kids understand safety is just to tell them to “Always check with mommy or daddy first before anything.” This wisdom works for young kids when it comes to talking to strangers, but it also works for preteens and teenagers when it comes to making various plans throughout the day. Always ask. It only takes a minute.
When it comes to strangers, you can never be too prepared.
Safety should be everyone’s number one priority.
