Kids and Strangers
We encounter many folks we don't know in any given day. Back when I was a child, I was ingrained with concepts that strangers were bad: never talk to strangers and definitely never go with someone you don't know. Nowadays, we have a feeling that the stranger talk is a bit different, but definitely still important. How do you approach the topic with the children? What are core concepts and messages that you have given your children?
Along the lines of people knocking at your door and safety, I am wanting to know how to bring all of this up to my 4 year old twins. They now know how to unlock and open our front door. I have had the conversation of not opening the door to ANYONE, to come and get mom or dad, and I will keep this conversation going. My question is, at this young age, how do I really start the stranger/safety conversation without making them scared of everyone who walks by?
