Jodie Norton is a wife and Mom of 4 and she’s a parenting blogger
She thinks we need to change the way we talk to our kids about “Stranger Danger”. When you tell your kids not to talk to strangers EVER, they immediately get an idea in their head that a stranger is bad guy will likely look like a bad guy.
Instead, she teaches her kids about “Tricky People” so that they look at the situation rather than the person. Her kids know that a “Tricky Person” ask kids for help and for favours. Where as a safe adult would never do that. If a safe adult needed help, they would ask another adult.
Jodie says she believes this technique actually saved two of her boys from being abducted when a man tried to convince them to follow him into a public bathroom.
