“Stranger Danger” – shall we tell the children?

Stranger2A friend of mine shared this post which offered an insightful and thought-provoking view on why parents should not teach children about “stranger danger,”  It’s a dilemma every parent faces: at what age do you progress from the softly-softly, safety advice given to toddlers and young children to tips on how to stay safe in a wider context with full knowledge of what could happen if you don’t? There’s some good pointers in the post – It’s worth a read.
