For children who are younger than school age, the best thing you can do is to know exactly where your kids are. At all times. Really young kids just don’t understand what a stranger is. They think they’ll stand out the way they often do on the TV. They don’t realize that the friendly looking person they just spoke to in the playground was a stranger. Even if you point it out to them. It’s up to you to keep a close eye on your children. To know where they are, and to be alert without being alarmed.
