The ‘Tip of the Week’- is ‘Protecting Your Children’. Tell children of the tactics that are used by abductors to approach them e.g. to go looking for a pet, offering gifts, asking directions to a location and offering a lift etc. Tell them they should never go with strangers into cars or houses regardless of what explanation is being offered. Tell your child to inform you immediately if a stranger approached them. Never dress your children with their names conspicuously on their clothing as strangers may use their names to get their attention. Tell them to scream and where to go if a person tries to grab them.
