It is sad to say that kids do get kidnapped. When I was growing up my mom always told me to watch out for strangers because they might just kidnap me. Of course, me thinking they wouldn't or I could talk them out of it. I was not afraid. I lived out in the country so it was a little harder for a kidnapper to nab one of us.

Now times are changing and here are some tips that could keep your child safe.

Make sure your kids know your cell phone number, home phone number, as well as their own address. Keep an open line of communication with your kids know who they are talking to.

Know who your child's friends are and where they are and who they are with. Know where they are going.

If someone try to get your child and force them into a car tell them to scream and run away as fast as they can.
