I cant believe that any parent would find the need to hide such information from their children! Its ludicrous! STRANGER DANGER IS A REALITY - IT HAPPENS! GET USED TO THE IDEA! Honestly im gobsmacked at having learnt on sky news that their are so many of you who think its ok to let your children believe that life is a bed of roses and everyone is safe and secure in their surroundings! For gods sake - familiar family members have been locked away for abusing the children it doesnt even have to be a stranger!!
I once lost my daughter (then 3and half) in the supermarket, i immediately considered the possibility that she may have been snatched (luckliy she was only hiding under a rail of clothes) but it could happen to any one of us - how would your child react? Would they go off with the stranger? taking his word for it that they were safe? I know that my children would not! I have fully prepared them for the worst and to run and scream and do anything at all to get away from the abductor. They are fully aware of Madeleine McCann and how awful the situation is, yes they are upset, yes they do ask awkward questions that id rather they didnt have to consider at such tender ages of 6 &4, but life is not like that, there are people out there that will take your child away in the blink of an eye!
FOR HEAVENS SAKE EDUCATE YOUR CHILDREN DONT HIDE THEM AWAY FROM IT!
