    Several people have mentioned something along these lines and I just don't get it. The two concepts are not mutually exclusive. Bodily integrity and stranger danger education both play a part in keeping kids safe.

    Because too too many people get hung up on Stranger Danger and fail to understand that kids are more at risk from people they know and trust than they'll ever be from a stranger.

    At each Police station there are special officers who deal with all this for young kids. You can always take them to your local police for a chat or invite them to your kindy, day care etc for a talk. The kids always respond really well to it.

    Lol! our local one doesn't like face to face visits. They prefer phone calls only. Long story short we had to report a theft of a sensitive nature and needed a stat Dec or something like that and went to the local one and they pretty much told us unless we were beaten up really badly not to go to the station next time, just call. And the sad thing is, Dd1 was with us. So that kind of broke the trust of being able to go to the police if in trouble.

    I have always thought this one is a good idea too and every now and then I randomly ask my kids what the family password is so they don't forget it.

    Probably sounds corny, but we also often act out different scenarios with the kids so they can practice what to do/say in those types of situations, in the hope that somewhere in the back of their minds they will retain it.

    There's always one dodgy copper who is too lazy to do anything. Try again and hopefully get someone nice. Or ring first and ask for the right person. Or go to the next station. They wonder why we loose faith

    I don't think it's corny at all. It only takes a few minutes and could potentially save their lives, or their kids' lives and so on. They will hopefully teach their children in similar ways we teach ours.
