Yesterday I had a strange visitor in the house. A lady around fifty I suppose wearing jeans. I found her sitting on the couch with my youngest son. I got the goose bumps since I know the gate was locked. She was smiling when I approach them both and mmediately ask how she was able to come in. She said that my son opened the gate for her. Next thing I knew she stood up before I had the chance to ask her why she was there. All she said that she knows now where to go next time and she went out the door and through the gate. I ask my son if he opened the gate for her and he said that she mentioned my name and I was the purpose of the visit.that's why he opened the gate. I reported it right away to the police describing her coz I never got her name. Here in our country a lot of children are kidnapped and used to beg in the streets and even sell them as slaves. Police assured me that they would be visible in our area now that I made the report. What if I move out is this. best?

@Peach10 _Has there been other similar incidence in your neighborhood? I'm also thinking maybe the woman was not in her right mind, Like one of our neighbor, a man with PTSD who would often enter the house of other people unannounced. He is harmless though.
@josie_ there's a ot of reports even in the news kids being taken and used as beggars or slaves here and there was a more scary report that they get the organs of kids to sell them. I have 3 and I am not going to let anything happen to them. I am planning to move out soon

That is very scary. I'm glad you called the police. I don't think moving would be a good idea, if people kidnap children to beg in the streets and use as slaves. It wouldn't matter where you went. It's best that you called the police. They are aware of her now and will be watching for her.
Teach your son not to open the gate to anybody, and never, ever to go with anybody but you. Invent a password that is secret between you and your son. Tell him to remember that word, and that if you ever do have to send someone to collect him, you will tell them that word. If someone comes to him and says you have sent them, he should ask them what the word is, and if they don't know it, he should not go with them.
My youngest son opened the gate for her when I was in the kitchen.I didn't want to stop her or get mad at her coz I was thinking of my son who was beside her on the couch.Seems the only way was to stay calm but she left right away. Police are monitoring every hour and they ask me to stay put in my house coz I was planning to leave after the incident. So far we're fine.

Oh how scary. Defiantly put a lock on the gate that only you can open and a security camera and tell your son NEVER open the gate..Don't even let him go to the gate to get you instead. You could also ask the police if they have a program to teach kids about stranger danger. I would move if it's that bad anyway.
