    We tried hard. Talk about good touch weird touch, touching where underwear is worn, scream NO! Find an adult friend to tell.

    One technique we picked up from Safety Kids is the song
    I know my number
    I know my number
    2456839

    repeated three times or so it sinks in. And that's the number we had twenty years ago. I look really silly singing this stupid song out loud, but it works so I'm still singing away.

    We also taught yelling, "He's not my daddy," which I teach in the dojo, and told stories, like the girl outside the Kailua movie theater Saturday afternoon was getting hassled by a perv and thinking quick she said loudly to a older decent man who was walking up, "Hi Daddy! I'm so glad you are here." And ran up to the man, who was smart enough to catch her winking and nodding at the perv. We tried to teach the kids to thinks, to escape when they were little.


    And of course, we soon got them into Kyokushinkai, then other martial arts and that actually saved them, daughter at 19 was an experienced black belt, attacked by a rapist fought hard and fast (said rapist looked shocked as she struck him and kia'd at the top of her lungs), son saved himself and other kids once or twice, once saving a drunk kid from serious abuse (they were all drunk but my son and other kid called 911 after my small son beat up the 6'3" abuser, who ran, and then waited for the ambulance and ended up doing time for minor in possession).

    So good for the girl, code words are smart, now go train.

    Our daycare only releases my kid to us, the parents or grandparents or others the kid clearly knows and we have beforehand said would be coming. If we have a change of plans we have to call in to let them know someone else is coming instead of the usual routine.

    A friend of mine started shouting that at the top of his lungs when he was a kid, when his dad tried to drag him somewhere at the mall. So, there's potential for backfire there.

    Isn't that a risk with any method of not being taken somewhere you don't want to be?

    I also think it's important to teach them where to look for help if they get lost, separated, etc. Of course there's the police officer option but there's not always one around. My kids have been told to find a mother who has children with her and ask for help.

    I was a latch key kid and we had code words to signal when I was home, if I was trouble, etc. We didn't have one for someone to pick me or my siblings up becaues we knew everyone that would come and get us. If they couldn't come then we didn't go anywhere unless it was the MPs/Police and even then it would stil require an adult we knew.

    With my kids well hell I think anyone would give them back immediately!
    Still my wife insists that we raise them and protect them so we have our own SOP.

    Interesting, if disturbing feature on UK TV

    http://www.itv.com/presscentre/press...n#.UieBFH9qI5s


    In a controlled and structured environment, Daybreak tested this question by conducting an intricate experiment. After recruiting nine volunteer parents and children (aged between 5-11 years) who believed they had had the conversation with their child about the importance of stranger danger, a ´┐Żnormal´┐Ż environment was created within a playground. With the child playing and the parent pretending to be distracted on a nearby bench, a Close Protection Officer posing as a stranger approached the child with the lure of helping to find a lost dog or help to find a child following a game of hide and seek.

    In a chilling turn of events seven out of the nine children followed the stranger out of the park.

    Reading an article today reminded me of this thread.


    "I was going to kindergarten and there was a man and a woman," Luo says. "I thought they were friends of my father so I went with them.

    "I was transferred from car to car. Later on I was told I was in a mountainous area in Fujian province."

    The bewildered schoolboy had been taken to Sanming, 1,500 km (900 miles) away where life with a completely different family awaited him. Luo was given a new name and introduced to a new sister.

    He had become one of thousands of children abducted every year in China, very few of whom will ever return home. The country's one-child policy and lax adoption laws has fuelled an underground market for trafficked children. Earlier this year a police chief in Fujian claimed over 10,000 children had been trafficked in 2012 in his province alone.

    I taught the "He's not my daddy" and "fire!, fire!, fire!" in the Safe Kids program for many years. Anything to get attention from those who would otherwise be reluctant to take notice.

    We also taught about inappropriate touching and that many times (most in fact) it was by someone known by the family.

    Stranger Danger was another one with the instance of someone in a vehicle looking for a puppy/dog.

    These are conversations any parent should have with a child. How much they remember when a situation is taking place is dependent, in part, on the emphasis one makes to the importance of the situation.

    and

    You can't pick up a kid from our school system without first being registered with the school as being able to do so. HS even requires a scan of your driver's license and a photo made on the spot by the same machine to enter the school by the front doors.
