Hi all

I have 1 ds and 1 mindee - both 3 and a half years old, and we've just learnt through Kent police that there have been 3 attempted abductions in the North Kent area :panic: Anyway, I've been meaning to teach about stranger danger, and I've just bumped it up on my list of priorities...but where to start? :huh: My own ds knows to shout "I don't know you!" as loud as he can and to call for help, kick, wriggle etc to get away to safety, but at this age, it doesn't really sink in for them. Have any of you got any advice/resources/hints and tips that would help, and actually make them remember what they've been taught (but not scare them too much)?

Thanks guys :thumbsup:

There's a book by the Duchess of York called "Daisy learns about strangers" which might help or try www.kidscape.org.uk - they have lots of information
