"Strangers pose the biggest safety risk to my child..." This statement may be the most common myth surrounding child safety. In many cases, victims and parents know the perpetrator who is often a family member or trusted friend and responsible for your child's safety. While diligence is needed at home, children also need protection when they are out. Unfortunately, they are confused with the complex concept of strangers which makes "Stranger Danger" difficult to grasp. A better approach is to teach children about good "friends" who help during emergencies.
Some friends are: Teachers, Police Officers, Firefighters, Doctors, and Medics.
Set positive examples and help children talk with "friends."
