Prevent child abductions this holidays


One minute she’s there and the next she’s gone. It's indeed every parent’s worst nightmare not to know where their child is, or what’s happened to her. Here's how to prevent kidnapping or abduction.

Take action:
Your children should always check with you before they go anywhere or get into a car – even with someone they know; you should know where your children are at all times; children should not accept gifts or favours from anyone without checking with you first; your children should not go unaccompanied to places, especially unknown ones – they should always take a friend with them; and your children should know your address, your home telephone number, your cellphone number and your work number.
