Re: When/how to introduce "Stranger danger"
Don't mean to be negative or start anything, but a child is more likely to be abducted or hurt by someone in their own community that they have seen before or even know well then they are a stranger. Stranger Danger is a good thing to teach, but it can give kids a false security-kwim? Mr Jones lives down the street, we're not friends but he's not a stranger either, so its ok to help him look for his puppy. I would include warning against that kind of thing too.
We haven't addressed this at all yet (dogs yes, but not with people). DD is kind of anti social and is never away from me. I guess its time we start too.
