Stranger danger

Posted by   + Show Post
My two year old has no stranger danger. She talks to anyone who will listen and walks right up to people. It makes me nervous. Any tips on how to handle this?

I read an article about TRICKY STRANGERS.. but at her age, its simply if mommy doesnt know them then you don't know them. As they get older it becomes No adult would ask a kid to look for a puppy or kitten that was lost.

We don't say don't talk to strangers. Instead my son knows he cannot talk to them without us present, cannot go anywhere with them, them and cannot take anything from them without permission.
Talking to strangers is an important skill I was never taught. I was afraid to even order at a restaurant or buy something because stranger danger was so beat into me. But police officers, fire fighters, and other strangers can be important to talk to.
I was even afraid to make a phone call it was so bad. I would make hubby do it.

I was like that to. I only started going places by my self a couple years ago. I still get nervous around new people and avoid all things that may end in me having to talk to people i don't know. Im scared of alot of things because i was told how bad the world is as a child. Idk if thats a good thing or a bad thing lol seems im paranoid.
