Protecting Your Kids From Perverts

Protecting Kids From PervertsLet’s face it. They’re out there. Those disgusting predators that would just love to get their filthy hands on your child.

So how do you protect your kids?

The first thing is to be sure your kids know what to do when approached by a stranger. This can be a little tougher with boys than with girls. Girls have a natural apprehension about strangers. Boys tend to want to act tough, especially when surrounded by friends. So approaching a stranger can be a “test of their manhood” even at a young age. So talk to your kids. Roll-play with them so they know what to do in any given situation.

The second thing you can do is to educate yourself. Find out where these perverts live. Know how safe your neighborhood is or isn’t. Web sites like http://www.familywatchdog.us/┬ácan really give you a good idea of what you are dealing with locally.

The third thing you can do is get your neighborhood together. Be sure you are all watching out for each others kids. Don’t send a neighbor’s child home by him or herself, and ask that your neighbors do the same. There’s safety in numbers.

What have you done to protect your kids? Please share your comments. Everyone can benefit if we all stick together and share ideas.
