Live Interview: National Missing Children’s Day @MissingKids #DisappearedID

Friday, May 10th at 2 p.m. tune in to a live interview with Nancy McBride. She’s the National Safety Director for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). Nancy has great advice on whether “stranger danger” is a good term to teach your kids, how to be safe at amusements parks this summer, what we can all learn from the Cleveland Kidnapping Case and what is National Missing Children’s Day.

Watch, learn, share!

As a Mother, my eyes have been glued to the news in Cleveland of three women who were found alive after more than 10 years. My heart aches for the victims and their families. The timing is amazing to bring attention to National Missing Children’s Day – May 25, 2013.

    How crazy and EXTREMELY lucky are those gals in Cleveland! It gives hope though… Never give up! I can’t even begin to imagine what I would do…
    I always find it odd that we teach our kids they HAVE to listen to adults but some forget to teach them to NEVER talk to strangers… watch out for themselves and give the small fry’s some sense of self and power without scaring the bejezzuz out of them It’s a fine balancing act but such an important one all kids NEED to know!

  3. what a great mircle it was that these three women were found–it is truly unreal–and it gives hope to so many families in the same horrible situation. Thanks for bringing attention to this topic and getting the word out!

  5. It’s amazing that these girls are still alive. Unfortunately not all are this lucky. It’s great that you’re sharing resources on how to stay safe and help prevent these types of situations.

  6. Teaching our children and grandchildren the importance of stranger – danger is great. But how do we succeed in teaching them and yet not striking fear and distrust in their hearts.

  7. I also would love to know how to teach our children stranger danger but also showing them how to discern from a potentially harmful person to a nice person just saying hello or something like that. Here in the south people talk to each other all the time, even without knowing each other, so sometimes it’s hard to tell who could be a danger and who is really harmless.

  8. I think this is every parent’s fear. So glad the Cleveland case ended well despite what those poor girls went through.

    Very timely with everything being revealed about Cleveland. Kind of shocking when you hear about it, even more so when it’s in your own backyard. Thanks for this post.

    This topic is so important. My niece who is 13 going on 30 thinks its OK to be walking out and about alone. There are so many dangerous things to be aware of and trying to expose her to the realities seems to be difficult to get across to her.
