How do I broach the subject of Stranger Danger to dd1? She is 10.
She has had no need to play out as none of her mate live round here so she isnt picking this up as she goes along.
She is however being sent on errands, and is happy to go off 5-10 mins in advance of us with us trundling behind..
What do I say without frightening the crap out of her???

I read in the newspaper over the weekend that there were 11.6 million under 16s in 2002 and only, only shock 68 abductions by strangers.

mummylin2495 Sun 27-Jul-08 14:24:40

even 1 is too many for the parents and the child that has been abducted.Your film has been posted so maybe tomorrow for you.It is one in a series of ten,the others include.electrical dangers ,water,traffic,railway lines and all things like that.They are being distributed to schools and they hope to go nationwide with them.Although the film is only short i can tell you it took all day to make it.I know because my dh went with her.he reckons he has a part in it,but he is offscreen !!!!

charliecat Sun 27-Jul-08 14:30:43

ha ha ha Wel whatever the film is it will be a hint in the general direction. I soooo dont know how to approach the subject?? Not sure why I dont...weird.

chocolatespiders Sun 27-Jul-08 14:34:35

thanks mummylin for your kind offer
i would love a copy please

mummylin2495 Sun 27-Jul-08 14:40:19

you will have to give me your email chocolate spider.the film is the stranger danger one,very uncomplicated and easy to explain to your child.

mummylin2495 Sun 27-Jul-08 14:41:25

mummylin2495 Wed 30-Jul-08 15:32:09

charliecat ,have you recieved the film ????

willali Wed 30-Jul-08 17:28:47

I'd be surprised if she hasn't already covered this at school anyway?? My DS also 10 was so affected by the talk they had at school he needs persuading to go to the shop directly across the road!!!

I would recommend reading 'Protecting the Gift.'
