Teaching Children to Run Away From Danger
Of course the makers of the Amber Alert GPS child locator loves when they hear from parents who have used the device in an emergency to recover their lost child. But the thing, which they enjoy hearing even more than that, is a failed attempt of kidnapping by a child abductor. Recently a seven year old walking a dog in Colorado was approached by a man in a car who wanted her to get in, but instead she choose to run for safety. This little girl knew how to handle the situation and did so perfectly. Of course the only thing better than a child avoiding abduction would be if there was no danger of this at all. But until that day comes parents can use education and personal tracking devices to ensure that their child is safe.
