Take precautions to prevent kidnappings

(Continued)

These include:

• Don’t talk to strangers or take rides from strangers.

• Children should know that if someone does try to abduct them, they should yell and kick and avoid being enclosed in a car that could take them away.

• Strangers shouldn’t be allowed into a home.

• Children answering a telephone shouldn’t share personal information.

Children also can learn “to be good witnesses,” Nayor said. They can get the color and license number of a car, he said, adding that parents can teach their children through role-playing and other game-like exercises.

Parents and children also should be cautious about adults who are overly friendly to youngsters.

“There are predators out there,” Nayor said. “It could be someone they know.”

Let’s make sure we do all we can to make this scary world a bit safer.
