A man exposed himself yesterday to my friends 3 year old daughter and he little friend! He just started rubbing himself and telling the girls how much he wished they could give him a massage. I'm pretty ticked off! So is my friend and she's really scared too and upset that her daughter had to go through something like that.
My friend (Nikki) lives in another town about 30 minutes from us so i'm not entirely worried about anything like that happening here (we also have a cop living just down the street who keeps his cop car parked out front) but I'm super worried for her kids! She chased the man down but he got in a car and drove off and they didn't get his plates. She's doing her best to explain to her daughter about strangers, what happened, and they walked through the neighborhood warning parents that this guy is around and to keep an eye out for him. They called the cops but there's nothing the cops can really DO since they didnt get that guys plates.
If that were me I would have gotten his plates but if I didn't, I dunno, it would make me scared to let Dd play outside with her friends (she's only 1 so of course she doesn't play outside alone but if she was 3 it would).
What would you do if that happened to your kids? How would you explain the situation to them?
