How Much Do You Really Know About Teaching Your Child Safety?

There has been a huge amount of news recently involving child abductions, parental abductions, and child abuse. From Natalie Holloway in Aruba to Jessica Lundsford in Florida, parents have heard about children who have been kidnapped and murdered. Then there were the stories of parents who keep their children in cages or made them drink bleach to cleanse them of evil spirits.

This is very scary stuff. The fact that we live in a world where people will hurt children, where even some parents have hurt their own children. We see profiled pictures of child sexual predators online, in the newspaper, and on television almost every week now it seems.

What is a young parent, or any parent for that matter, who cares about their child’s welfare and safety to do? Obviously I can’t lock my child up somewhere just to keep them safe. Obviously I can’t watch them and be with them 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. What kind of life would that be for me or for my child.

Obviously I do not want my child to grow up being scared of every stranger she or he meets. It’s not fair to my child to have to learn about avoiding child sex predators. It’s not fair to me to have to learn about something I would rather not ever have to think about.
