EDITORIAL: Educate your kids on stranger danger

Posted: Updated:
(Toledo News Now) -

In the past month, Toledo News Now has reported on several stranger danger incidents. This is the term used when adults attempt to lure children, with whom there is no relationship, into a vehicle.

This perversion of the inherent trust children place in adults is reprehensible and heinous. 

If you are a parent or guardian, talk to your kids, give them the confidence to deal with this situation. Unfortunately, these predators are persistent and unpredictable. So as a parent or guardian, your best defense is a child who knows what to do. 

Have that conversation today.
