Child Safety Tips On Preventing Abduction

Keep Kids SafeI have a very heavy heart this morning after learning the body found in a Georgia landfill is indeed that of 7 year old Somer Thompson who disappeared walking home from school near Jacksonville, Florida. While authorities are trying to solve this murder, the community is on alert because a child killer is on the loose. I cannot imagine the horror Somer’s family is experiencing after losing their precious little angel.

Even though most people see children as blessings, there are monsters who sadly see them as “prey”. While we cannot put our children in bubbles (although as sick as this world is, I wish we could), what we can do is make sure to educate them on safety. As parents, we need to be aware of our surroundings and set up alerts from The Dru Sjodin National Sex Offender Public Website (NSOPW), coordinated by the U.S. Department of Justice, to know when sexual predators move into our area.

Sit down with your children and review these child safety tips on preventing abduction. It is a scary subject to discuss; however, don’t you prefer to educate your children now instead of becoming another statistic? Awareness can help your children protect themselves.

  1. while we are doing that, let’s research convictions and send messages to our judges and lawmakers saying we want laws and punishments enforced to the max, and that we want tougher laws.

    While we are protecting our kids, we are taking away essential freedoms from them. The freedom to be alone in mother nature’s green earth, for one.

    Our kids pay, while predators run loose, playing fast and loose with the system.

  2. Amen, I couldn’t agree more!

    I have been crying out for the children for quite some time now. I hold a prayer vigil the first of each month at 12:00 noon. We have to be like the wailing women of the Old Testament. We must cry for the safety of our children. This is hurting my heart deep into its core. The times are so evil. Men/women are preying on our children at alarming rates. This is truly praying time, not playing time. It does take a village to raise our children.
    Mothers and fathers, sisters, brothers, cousins, neighbors, and friends must walk our children to and from school. We must protect them with all the strength we have from the enemy (evil).

    Strange also how all these hard-hearted murders will go to death row and send up appeal after appeal to be spared; using taxpayer money and bleeding heart liberal judges who find excuses for the wicked behavior. The ACLU fights having decent standards about filty, corrupting porn also. This leads to more acts of wickedness against children and women.

    Great link to the child safety tips. It is very disheartening to see all of the missing children in the news. I think being proactive is the best way to deal with this, and for you and your kids to have some power in dealing with this frightening (yet statistically, remote) possibility. I really like AmberAlertRegistry.com, where you can upload your child’s ICE info (recent pictures, detailed description with height/weight, any medical needs) to a secure online site. It’s like an insurance policy; you hope you never need it, but if a crisis does occur all you have to do is give police your password and they have all of that critical info within seconds. I’d rather be prepared than have to try to gather all of that stuff in a panic.
