Child Abduction Prevention Tips and Strategies

Tips for Preventing Your Child From Being Abducted

About 2,100 missing-children reports are filed each day in the U.S. Many cases might be solved more easily if parents can provide a few key pieces of information about their kids, like: height, weight, eye color, and a clear recent photo. And make sure your kids have the safety information that could help prevent an abduction.

These strategies may help:

-Make sure custody documents are in order.

-Have ID-like photos taken of your kids every 6 months and have them fingerprinted. Many local police departments sponsor fingerprinting programs.

-Keep your kids’ medical and dental records up to date.

-Make online safety a priority. The Internet is a great tool, but it’s also a place for predators to stalk kids. Be aware of your kids’ Internet activities and chat room “friends,” and remind them never to give out personal information. Avoid posting identifying information or photos of your kids online.

-Set boundaries about the places your kids go. Supervise them in places like malls, movie theaters, parks, public bathrooms, or while fundraising door to door.

-Never leave kids alone in a car or stroller, even for a minute.

-Choose caregivers — babysitters, childcare providers, and nannies — carefully and check their references. If you’ve arranged for someone to pick up your kids from school or day care, discuss the arrangements beforehand with your kids and with the school or childcare center.

-Avoid dressing your kids in clothing with their names on it — children tend to trust adults who know their names.

If Your Child Is Abducted

Because the first few hours are the most critical in missing-child cases, it’s important to provide officials with information about your child immediately.

If your child has been abducted, contact local law enforcement right away. They’ll ask you for a recent picture of your child and will probably ask you many questions about the time and location you last saw your child and what your child was wearing.

You may also request that your child be entered into National Crime and Information Center (NCIC). Other clearinghouses such as the Child Protection Education of America ([866] USA-CHILD) and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children ([800] 843-5678) can offer information and support during your search.

After notifying the authorities, try to stay calm. You’ll be able to remember details about your child’s disappearance more easily if you remain rational and logical.

As parents ourselves and working with so many children we hope that none of us ever have to experience such a horrific event. Education is key for not only our children but us as parents as well.

Our martial arts classes teach life lessons such as abduction awareness daily. If you think your child could benefit from an environment like ours feel free to contact us to learn more about our trial program, schedule and pricing.

Does regular training really make a difference?

Answer: Absolutely.

Every Summer we get an influx of College bound 17 yr olds looking to a take a self-defense class. Often when I ask them when are they leaving for College the response is usually something like, ” in 3 weeks”. They seem a little taken aback when I inform them that they are 2 years to late.

Self Defense or Self Protection training is not something that can be learned, in one class. Sure, you might do “a couple of moves” but because of the nature of what happens in a physical attack, one class cannot possibly cover all the potential scenarios.

One must take into account the stresses associated with a verbal or physical assault, the surroundings, number of assailants, location, what you are wearing, your awareness or lack thereof, temperature, even the surface on which you are standing and of course your skill set and response time.

Regular training will help the student to develop skills and techniques and memory recall, among other things and importantly build confidence needed to enable the student to react fast and with the aggressiveness needed to win.
