 Ask another Mom for help if you become lost 

teach your child who to ask for help and who not toAs a Parent you need to instruct your kids where to go and who to ask for help, if they become lost. Another woman with kids is usually a safe place. Most Child Pedophiles are men. Women usually are not child pedophiles and when they are, they are usually helping a man. If your child becomes lost, teach your kids to ask for help from another woman with kids. There is no such thing as a perfect plan, but there might come a time where your kids need help from stranger. They need to know where to go for help.

It is OK to ask a Stranger for help 

Ask the right person

learn when and HOW to ask a stranger for helpI saw a kid on television who was lost, it was a reenactment. The Child was lost in the woods. The child was so scared of strangers, she was hiding from her rescuers. She almost died from exposure because she did not know the difference from her asking for help and someone asking her for help. There may be a time when a child needs help. A child needs to learn, if they become lost, to ask for help, to as many people as possible and not to leave with a single person. A Child needs to know that you love them and you would never give them up or stop looking for them.
