If you’re like me the fire department came to your school to teach you about stop drop and roll. Then the police came to teach you about “stranger danger.” You were instructed to never to talk to strangers! In episode 25 of The Secure Dad Podcast we take an updated look at the skills that will make our kids safer around people they don’t know. And you’ll understand why I suggest your kids really need to talk to strangers.
The concept of good and bad strangers is found in Gavin de Becker's book, Protecting the Gift: Keeping Children and Teenagers Safe (and Parents Sane.) I highly recommend this book for your family no matter the age of your children.
