Ds is 4 and starting primary school in September. He is a very sensitive child and recently has become obsessed with strangers. Asking "Where do they live" "what do they look like " "can you say hello to them" " can you hold their hand". Im trying to answer as best I can but I dont want to scare him either. Is there any books that anyone could recomend that I could read to him. He is not allowed out on his own anyway as he is only 4, but he is asking me will I always be there to protect him etc and I dont want to scare him off going to school.
Thanks so much as this is my first DC and I just dont want to confuse him

As one of my DC, 'why would you go off with a stranger, anyway?'.

I've not really bothered much about the issue - at four, you don't let a child out on their own, and by the time you do allow them out, they'll have had stranger danger rammed into them at school.

Just reiterate the rules when he does go out on his own.

Should have read: 'As one of my DC said'
