The world is not a safe place for your child. Molesters, kidnappers and a lot of harmful elements are out there, waiting for one slip and take away your child. You definitely can't be careful enough. Here are some ways that kidnappers can lure your child, and how you can keep them safe.
Showing new gadgets, attracting them with games or videos is one way a possible kidnapper can get your child's attention.
Offering food, especially things that most children like, is a common method. For all you know, the food can be laced with harmful chemicals.
There's a video doing the rounds on social media where a man offers young kids ride in a fancy car, and the children happily get in the car. Scary, right?
Luring children, especially small ones, is an old trick, but effective nonetheless.
Another video on social media shows a man offering children in a park a puppy to pet, and eventually asking them to come to his home where they can play with more puppies.
You definitely need to teach your child about 'stranger-danger'. Also, do not leave your child unattended ANYWHERE. In crowded places, where children have the tendency to run amok, use a baby carrier or a leash to keep them close to you.
