While researching on YouTube I came across this video of a News segment that happened about a year ago. Sgt. David Kok of the Rent County Sheriff’s Department was being interviewed and had some good tips on preventing attacks or abductions.
And if you have not signed up your children for the kidnapping prevention seminars on Saturday March 29th with Shihan Larry Fields here at Cobourg Tae kwon Do, you best sign up ASAP as there is no sign ups on that Saturday. SO let me know ASAP.
This we will be hosting a seminar on Kidnapping prevention taught by 33 time World Champion Shihan Larry Fields on Saturday March 29th I thought I would share a few tips you can share with your kids on kidnapping prevention.
Don’t exchange in conversations with people you don’t know.
If a car is following you, turn around and run the other way.
If you think someone was trying to kidnap you or someone else please report it right away.
If someone stops to ask you directions, reply with “Sorry I don’t know” while you are walking away from them.
If you feel you are in dangerous don’t be afraid to yell and scream while getting away.
Do whatever it takes to escape.
Always take the same route home after school so your parents know where you are.
Always tell your parents where you are going and your parents need to know the people you are with.
Never lie about who you were with.
That’s just a few basics you can discuss in details with your children.
I found this video on youtube that was filmed to show how easy a person can kidnap a child. They filmed this in broad daylight with other people and cars around. It can happen this easy. So teach your children to be prepared and aware. Awareness and prevention are the keys. It’s too late when an incident is already happening or after the fact.
