Reports about a self-proclaimed pedophile who stalks children and posts their photographs on the Internet, have prompted concern among parents, as children take to the streets this Halloween.
Child safety expert Bob Stuber, who regularly counsels law enforcement officials says it all starts with teaching children how to handle potentially dangerous situations.
To keep trick-or-treaters safe, he recommends adults do the following:
Overall, Stuber says it's critical to teach kids never to walk away or get into a car with strangers. "Because young children are especially trusting," he says, "they're vulnerable to adult requests for help, such as finding a puppy or seeking directions. Drive that message home, and it will quickly become a habit."
Once a child is aware of risks, it is vital to give them the tools and techniques. One way is to provide children with the OnGuard Kids Safety Watch with built-in 110-decibel alarm that audibly attracts attention should they encounter trouble.
