Unfortunately, children are often reckless. It happens that an adult is distracted for just a minute, and the baby is already lost in the crowd. To make it easier to find it, you need to take precautions in advance. The child should know his / her name, surname, address and age. He also needs to know the names of dad and mom.
Put a piece of paper with the phone numbers of loved ones in your baby's pocket. It is advisable that several numbers were recorded, since then it will be easier to get through if necessary.
Teach your child to use a cell phone. If your son or daughter is young, buy them a phone with a small number of buttons, each of which will correspond to the phone number of a loved one. Your notebook should contain the phone numbers of educators or teachers, as well as your child's friends and their parents. Find out the addresses and phone numbers of volunteer organizations in your city that are looking for children. If the child is lost, they will start looking right after your call. You also need to know the telephone number of the accident registration office: all information about accidents and accidents is received there.
Compose together a fairy tale about how the fairytale character got lost and then found his parents. Ask the child how he would act in such a situation, and from his answers it will be possible to understand whether he is ready for a critical situation.
Tell your toddler what to do if he gets lost in a store, bazaar, or anywhere else. Lost, the child is very afraid that adults will scold him, and because of this, he may become confused. Convince him that this is not the case. If you missed a child, the most important rule that he must remember is “stay where you are”. This will make it easier for you to find it.
If a stranger comes up to your baby and tries to take him away by force, the child should scream very loudly that he does not know him and will not go anywhere with him. You can also call your parents. Adults will definitely help. When you find the baby, do not yell at him, and even more so do not spank, but just hug him and tell him how glad you are that he was found.
