It’s important that your child clearly understands the difference between a friend and a stranger. Friends are people such as police, teachers or relatives. A stranger is someone they do not know.
Teach your child to say “No” if they are ever approached by a stranger who asks them to go with them or offers them a gift.
f someone ever makes them feel uncomfortable, tell your child they should let a “friend” know about it immediately. Don’t put your child’s name on anything such as their T-shirt, lunch box, school bag or anything else that may be visible and that would let a stranger call them by their name.
