stranger danger coloring pages
Stranger danger, are the buzz words commonly used to refer to the important topic of teaching children about the inherent dangers they may face as they venture out into the world.
Who are â€œstrangersâ€?
First and foremost, children need to understand what you mean by stranger.
Not all people unknown to them are necessarily dangerous â€“ they need to understand the difference between â€œgoodâ€ and â€œbadâ€ strangers; an overly simplistic dichotomy, but one that puts the issue in terms a child can understand.
This is important so children understand where and to whom to turn if they are ever lost or feel scared, threatened, or if they think someone may be following them.
Examples of â€œgoodâ€ strangers may include police officers, security guards, teachers, store clerks, etc. These are all examples of people to turn to if when your child needs help.
