Your kids know not to take candy from strangers, but what would they do if they heard this clever lie from a stranger? This little girl was minding her own business when walking home from school when a normal-looking family vehicle pulls up. Not a sense of danger alerts her when the kind-looking woman inside explains, "Your dad is in the hospital! Your mom sent me to come and get you!" Her attention was taken away from danger, and directed towards someone she cares about, so she hops right in the vehicle.
Hundreds of thousands of children of all ages are kidnapped every year with deceptive lies like this one. These real-life tips from Pretty Loaded will help your children know exactly what to do in a questionable situation when walking home from school. The most important of all is to never get in a car with someone you don't know, because your parents will never have a stranger come to get you.
Each of these tips are practical for raising awareness, intelligence when alone, and being observant of your surroundings. Ensuring your children are educated on each of these things will help them be prepared for a situation like this little girl was in.
