I’d like to start off by saying I may come off as paranoid -HOWEVER my children are MY LIFE (as with probably all of you as well)... we tend to parent differently BUT all want what is best for our children :).... on that note...
The policy for picking up children at my dd's elementary school is either the PARENT or the "assigned" person on the LIST can p/u the child with proper ID (if not the immediate parent).... I have my hubby, myself and our parents on the list....
Last Friday my hubby went to pick my 6 yr old dd from her school (kinder) and when he came home he said she was standing w one of my "friends"... None of the kinder teacher attended school that day (out sick) and there were subs with the children, so when my dd's class got out and my dd didn't see her daddy(or me) right away she started to almost cry... so my friend (parent acquaintance) called my dd over with her (since she said the teacher went over to.

OP HERE: OMG- i'm so glad i wasn't over-reacting, lol... OH believe ME i have made it VERY clear to my dd... AND EVEN MORE clear after Friday.... she "seems" to understand and trust me she is BEYOND smart... but this to me was unfortunate proof that "IT COULD HAPPEN to ANYONE... "
i ALSO try not to do the "what if's BUT OMG i cannot get it out of my head ESPECIALLY b/c i am in FL where the little girl was abducted on her way home from school and found 2 days later murdered in GA........ still WAAAAAAY to fresh in my head!.... i will talk to her teacher today and speak w the principal as well :)
