Please have a chat to your kids about "Stranger Danger".
My kids just think I am nuts - I rabbit on about this so much. But, the truth is this happened to me when I was young. I can not tell you how scared and totally vunerable I felt. It's the same story as you hear today a guy in car offers me a ride home - "I know your Mum" he said. I knew I wouldn't be able to out run him if he tried to run after me.
Police are encouraging parents and carers to discuss the ‘Safe People, Safe Places’ messages with their children, including:
- Make sure your parents or another adult you know knows where you are at all times.
Bec is a married stay at home mum who spends most of her time sorting out the chaotic lives of her two daughters, Jessica (7) and Tessa (3). When she’s not carefully coordinating her kids’ outfits, or addressing their notoriously complicated culinary requirements, she likes to share in the busy lives of other parents. After devouring mummy blogs for years, Bec decided to start blogging from her Cape Town home last year. She hopes her experiences will inspire other parents and help them feel less alone when things get tough.
