|...so sad but so true that a child's vision of a beautiful world should be tainted but you have done the best thing and prepared her and educated her for her safety. May God send extra angels her way:) -Lyn|

You know that I'm always concerned about safety, especially that of the little ones. So many crazy people out there. This is a great poem and a great way to keep reminding your little angel. She told me that mommy wrote a poem to/for her, and that you and she have been

|Yes, never never ever talk to strangers. The time when strangers were good people with a friendly smile as gone, now we have a new breed, predators, and one can ask self how we let it to go so far? why society allowed that social cancer to grow and diversify in all its levels?
Yes, don't talk to strangers, and sometimes not even with some members of your own family. How we let that happen?

Always a concern for caring loving wise parents and you are certainly one of those...the tenderness and love you have for your daughter is undeniable but unfortunately you have to warn her against the nastiness and evils of the world.

|Indispensable wisdom for the young and old. Even when adults intend no harm they should know that by interacting with little ones unfamiliar with them, when parents or guardians are not around to sanction such interactions, then they are encouraging children to interact with others who might be the exact opposite. (Obviously emergency situations are a completely different matter.) Appreciate the read.

|I hate, Hate, HATE that the world has come to this!! I hate never knowing if it is truly a safe enough place to let me children play freely where I am not within eyesight. I wish that this was not such important advice...but...instead...the truth is, it is a sad commentary on the times we live in...that our children live in.

|Sad that our world has come to this but it truly has. My grandaughter is also taught that you don't keep secrets parents...at first I thought this kind of extreme until my daughter explained that most child molesters tell kids that are conned into doing wrong things that it is a secret and not to tell anyone or bad things will happen to them or people they love...scarry this is the real world we live in.

I would NEVER hurt a child! EVER!!! Not ALL strangers are bad; yet people refuse to listen because of the bad ones! Tragic!!
