Preparing Young Children To Handle Danger
One thing that many parents are curious about when it comes to keeping their children safe from abduction is at what age do you start talking to them about the dangers that are out there. For the average kid this is around five to six years old but if your child seems to understand concepts you teach them than even earlier is okay to begin helping them understand little things like not talking to strangers. Try to avoid teaching them fear but instead try and install empowerment in your child that they can handle any situation adequately. Kids that are well informed and who believe that their parents believe in them will handle potential situations much better than those who are not ready for them. Plus kids that know they can hit the SOS button on a GPS tracking device also feel more secure in handling scary situations.
