If you became gravely ill/passed out at a public place with your child, would they know to tell an adult or have they been taught to never speak to a stranger?
If your child was lost at the mall or grocery store, would they know to find an employee and tell them or have they been convinced they must find a police officer?
If they become lost in a residential neighborhood, what have you told them to do to get help?
If your child was lost in the woods, would they hide from the rescuers like that little boy scout in Utah did a few years ago because he was afraid they might kidnap him, or would they yell for help when they heard searchers looking for them?

You asked some good questions,and all I can say you just to keep talking to your kids and pray for a shield of protection. On thing I have seen and heard,I have seen moms tell their kids,"if, you keep being bad,the police going to get you", or they will say,the doctor going to give you a big needle,now,if you tell a child these things,why would a child go to a police-person or anybody in uniform,when the parent told him to be afraid of him.You just have to trust your kids will do the right thing.
