Have you ever wondered how CoNfUsiNg and contradicting we as parents can be to our children? First, we tell our kids not to talk to strangers and then, when a stranger such as a cashier says “Hi” to our child and our child doesn’t answer back, we say, “Can you say “Hello” to this lady/gentleman?” If I were a kid, I would be confused too!!
This is one reason I love this DVD. It was created by JoHn WaLsH, host of “America’s Most Wanted” (his son was abducted and murdered which resulted in his relentless effort to get criminals off the street) and does a great job at explaining to children the safety precautions they should take as they come in contact with adults. Is it corny? Yes! But does it get the point across? I think so!! My kids are frequently referring to adults as “Don’t Knows”, “Kinda-Knows”, and “SaFe-SiDe AduLts” – the three categories that this DVD places people in.
If you are a parent, a grandparent, work with kids, are friends with kids, etc I highly ReCoMmEnD it! I purchased it on Amazon, where you can read all sorts of reviews. (The DVD scores a 4.5 out of 5.0 by the over 300 reviews.) I also checked with our local library and although they do not have it on hand, they do have access to it. So, check it out. It very well may save your kid’s LiFe!
