This is what LKA recommends

In order to protect children from potential gossip, the Lower Saxony State Criminal Police Office (LKA) advises parents to talk to children about such potential situations and prepare them. However, raising concerns should be avoided. A foundation of trust with children should be built and maintained so that boys and girls can also report on special events in the home.

Explain the false promises

Also important: “Children should be reminded time and time again that they are not allowed to go with anyone or ride in someone else’s car without parental permission,” continues LKA on its prevention website. In addition, children should never approach vehicles even if something is asked of them, whether by a man or a woman. In addition, youngsters should realize that promises such as sweets or even the possibility of being able to pet a young dog are lies and they should not fall in love with them.

let say no

“Kids need to know that they can and probably always say no to adults,” the LKA explains. “They should also realize that they don’t have to talk to strangers and don’t need to give them any information either.” Police Tip: The exclamation point “No, I don’t want that!” Parents should practice with their children. However, boys and girls should travel in groups whenever possible, knowing that strangers will never pick them up, no matter what strangers may say to them.

Parents need to listen

Parents themselves should listen carefully when their children report experiences, abuse, threats, or observations, not blaming potential wrongdoing and praising them for trust. Police also advise: School bags or backpacks should not bear the child’s name or address, as offenders can use this to build trust. At the same time, children should know that in an emergency they can always run away and call for help and they should not hide.
