Kids are taught to never talk to strangers in an attempt to keep them from being abducted yet there is a growing movement by some agencies to teach children to actually do just this if they get lost. The logic behind this is if a stranger approaches the child they probably do not have any business talking to them. But if a child is lost asking an adult to help them find their parents can help turn a very scary situation into one that is less traumatic for the child. Kids know to approach police officers but women usually are quick to jump to the aide of a lost child. Of course teaching this to your child is something that each parent will need to decide for himself or herself. But for those that have an Amber Alert GPS child locator finding a lost child is quick and easy.
