Children who are not prepared to handle dangerous situations become vulnerable targets
for child molesters and other criminal predators. Parents must work with their children
to explain some of the potential danger that exists in everyday life. Children must
be taught to become more aware of their surroundings and what could possibly go wrong
so that they do not become an unsuspecting victim. There are several safety issues
that we must take the time to educate our children about such as "street safety",
"home safety", " auto safety" and "fire safety".
Many youngsters are attacked, assaulted or abducted while walking in the street going
to or returning from a place that they are very familiar with. Such places as going
to a friends house, going to the ball park to play with their friends or simply going
to the store. Many children are unaware of their surroundings and do not look out
for dangerous situations. Children who lack self-confidence or self-esteem usually
walk with their heads down and pay little attention to people or objects around them.
This is the type of child that predators are looking for. If the child walks with
his/her head up, looking confident and looking around then the predator usually will
not select this type of child as a target.
There are several things that children must do when walking alone:
-Look confidant and hold your head up high and look around.
-Don't walk near alleys or the ends of buildings without checking them out. Cross
the street if possible to avoid them.
-Avoid vans or delivery trucks where someone could be hiding to reach out and grab
-Children should never walk through parking lots by themselves.
