Consider This: Stranger Danger

We had a scare this week in our community that every parent needs to be aware of. A little girl was walking her dog near her home, when a man approached her and used the trick of asking her to help him find his dog.

Consider This: Stranger child abductions are rare, but the motive is usually the most dangerous.

In these cases the victim does not know the suspect…but there is usually previous contact between the two. For example the suspect sees the child playing in a park, at a sporting event or in the neighborhood.

Fortunately in this recent case in Myrtle Beach, the child knew exactly what to do. She screamed, ran and got back to her home quickly. Please take time to talk to your children and make sure they would react the same way.
