What do you feel if your child have been kidnap by somebody we dont know at all? I have a friend with that case. I don't know what to do accept praying to god so that the child will be return back to her mother. In my heart I ask myself what will happen to me if the child is mind... What should you do to avoid this to happen?

As parents the best we can do is educate our children to stay away from strangers. And by that I mean actively teaching children what to do & how to respond to someone trying to entice them into a car or whatever. Kids are taught to be polite, to do what adults tell them; and they need to know sometimes it's OK not to be polite. If a stranger is trying to talk to them, ask them questions whatever it's OK to yell & scream & make a big huge scene to let people around you know that you don't know this person. Also as soon as the child is able to, he or she should know his address, his full name & his phone number. They should be taught how to pick out a safe person (like another mother with children) if they get seperated from you in a public place.

I know for sure I would have a panic attack. I would be out of my mind with flyer's and coffee. I would not sleep as I would be drinking red bull or taking no doze. I would get my azz out there and watch every person that passed my eye. If I could not get money to rent a car. I would beg one from mylot. I would watch all the hotels I could day by day. I would sit down and tune my body into my daughter's mind I would try to not lose it any more and stay focus.

I would be sick, I could not eat, sleep or function. My kids are my world. Without them there would be no life. I am glad that you are supporting your friend through a time like this. All you can do for her is pray, be there for her, help her function, like other people said put flyers everywhere, radio announcements, see if anyone knows anything. To avoid this happening, I think the best thing is education from a very young age. Teach your children to never talk to strangers. ALso try and drive them everywhere, instead of them walking or riding.

for me, i dont want that to be happen to my daughter because if that's happen i dont know what i can do..it's really hurting, with lots of worry in my mind that i dont know what to do except praying and hoping that my kid will in good hands, that she dont become hurt..it's not that easy for a mother if she's in that kind of situation..to avoid that it can be happen to me, i will teach my child not to go to people she dont know, then after school i will have to fetch her everyday, then as much as possible i want to accompany her in every place she go..

I think about stuff like that all the time, not only kid nappings, but people breaking in our home or school shootings. Anything bad that could possibly happen, i think about it and it absolutely has me in tears just thinking about it. I couldn't imagine my children not coming home from school one day or anything happening to them. I really think that I pray protection over my children every day and every night because I feel that that is important. We can't be with them every second of every day, so there needs to be some protection over them while they are away from us. I am so sorry to hear about your friend. Tell her that I am praying for her and her child's safe return. It's absolutely sickening to think about all the sick people out in this world doing stuff like that. keep us posted please. God bless
