Stranger Danger needs revamp

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 21 August, 2012 - 9:38 AM
Not all strangers are dangerous and that is why children need to learn a new message according to experts.

The old 'Stranger Danger' adage needs a major overhaul for the new millennium according to child safety experts. Paul Murray spoke to Professor Freda Briggs who said children need to learn games and strategies that will help them assess dangerous situation.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Wow, MH, I hope your lecturer's don't take spelling into the equation when marking your assignments.
    When my niece was studying pyschology, at some point, she mentioned that given population and demographic,
    1 in 100 people are serial killers.
    And do you know how many comets and extremely huge meteors have missed hitting the earth?
    Yes, "rock-spiders" are nasty and most usually crawl out from under our own homes or the houses of those we've known and trusted (State care and religious institutions being prime examples).

  • I'm studying criminal psychology. Are you suggesting we tell kids it's ok to talk to strangers and get into the car of someone they don't know? Are you aware that one in 25 people are born without a conscience? This is a factual phenominen that the general public are simply not aware of. The modern terminology is 'antisocial personality disorder'. In layman's terms 'psychopath'. These people are born completely lacking any feelings of guilt, shame, remorse, empathy or fear. The things they see as 'weaknesses' in others. It's not obvious to the rest of us because they learn to hide it; and we assume that most people are basically good. Well maybe so, but with these figures outnumbering schizaphrenia and other mental disorders I'm just glad that my 'kids' are now adults.
