The New Way Millennial Parents Are Teaching Their Kids About ‘Stranger Danger’

For many parents in 2018, this kind of fear is still very real: 25 percent of parents worry that someone will hurt or attack their child, and 14 percent are afraid of kidnapping and abduction. However, the current reality is that kids are more likely to be harmed by people they know than by strangers. In 2016, just 1 percent of the missing child cases handled by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children were classified as non-family abductions — by comparison, 6 percent of missing children were abducted by family members. Statistics also show that a staggering 90 percent of children who are sexually abused know their abuser. Approximately 30 percent are abused by a family member, and 60 percent by someone their family knows and trusts.

She handed her baby to a stranger — and never saw them again

It’s a child snatch horror story that will send chills through every parent.

The tragedy unfolded 35 years ago when a mom gave her tiny girl to a strange woman who begged to hold her at a bus stop – then vanished with her infant daughter.

Eleanor Williams, 52, said the woman approached her at a bus station in 1983, asking to hug the tot.

The young mom, then just 18, naively let her take 3-month-old April Williams in her arms after she pleaded: “please, just for a minute?” in a “sweet voice”.

Shortly after the stranger, who called herself Latoya, insisted she take baby to the bathroom to change her, telling Eleanor: “you look exhausted”.

But the woman never came back – and the pair have been missing ever since.

The incident took place on December 2 in downtown Washington, DC.

Heartbroken Eleanor says she will never forgive herself for the decision that day.

She isn’t giving up search for dog, lost during attack by stranger

Although the odds seem stacked against her, Kim Takeuchi has not given up hope of finding Happy, a fluffy white Maltese mix dog that was lost after an attack by a stranger in the Heintz Open Space area in Los Gatos last week.

The Takeuchis have used a pet tracker, volunteers and social media, and although there is an indication the dog might have met a tragic end, Takeuchi is not ready to give up hope.

“I’m going to keep looking for her,” Takeuchi says. “I have to.”

Happy and two other dogs owned by Takeuchi were being walked by friend Sherri Harvey, who also had her own dog with them. Harvey was about a quarter-mile from the park entrance when a man walked quickly toward her, yelling profanities and claiming that one of the dogs had bitten him.

Harvey was skeptical because the dogs, off leash, had been with her. When she asked to

Stranger Things 2 Dominates Reviews and Social Media

When Stranger Things debuted on Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) in July 2016, it was a breakout hit and became one of the most streamed shows of the year. The series, which combines horror with a nostalgic view of 1980’s pop culture, was lauded by fans and critics for combining a gripping story with compelling characters.

The long-awaited release of Stranger Things 2 in late October carried on in the tradition of its predecessor and recreated the buzz that made the original a smash hit. It captured a 95% Fresh on review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes and also garnered massive social media attention ahead of its release.

Buzz-worthy shows are one of the key drivers of new subscribers for Netflix, and its record of creating and acquiring noteworthy programming shows why the streaming pioneer will continue to succeed.

Boy describes scary ‘stranger danger’ incident near school: ‘He chased us’

Parents who have children in the Campbell-Kapolei Complex Area were sent letters Thursday alerting them to “stranger danger” incidents involving three elementary schools this week.

The elementary schools were Ewa Beach, Mauka Lani, and Keoneula.

According to the Department of Education, all three cases involved students walking to or from school. In all cases, officials say no students were injured and the incidents were reported to parents and/or school officials.

They reported being approached by a man in a black- or dark-colored truck who offered them a ride. In one case, a student reported being grabbed the man in an attempted abduction.

Luke Okihiro’s 8-year-old son, Cameron, was there.

As he spent the afternoon watching his son play soccer, Okihiro said he’s thankful Cameron is safe after running from a man who tried to lure him and his friends into a truck days earlier.

“Basically Cameron told me some guy in a black truck try to offer
