Keep your kids safe

When my kids were growing up there was always a plan for that stranger that may ask them to go with them. Stranger danger doesn't always work. Teach your child a password, dogs name, colour, house number, anything, the instructions are easy.

The child does not go with anyone who does not know the password no matter what they say, a lost puppy, get them some candy etc. Remember to tell a person you need to pick up your child the password in case of an emergency. I did this with all my kids and never had an issue. One person tried but didn't know the password so my child ran.

May seem old school but it works, this was taught in schools way back. Don't forget to change the password every so often and keep your kids safe.
