When Carsyn was two and a half, she got away from me for maybe 90 seconds at the mall. It is still the scariest 90 seconds of my life. I will never forget the desperation and terror that I felt while looking for her. From such an early age, we all tell our children, "Don't talk to strangers". But, in the eyes of a child, a stranger means something differently than it does to us adults.
I encourage every parent, grand-parent, aunt or uncle, care-giver, anyone really who is ever in charge of a child, to watch this video. This is a social experiment of what happens when a man, with a dog, tries to lure children away with him from a playground. Prepare to be speechless.
