In my most recent post, I talked a bit about my 2nd book – Super Secret Police S**t That Can Save Your Life – and ended with a promise to detail secrets to keeping your children safe. My Kid Escape (or, Counter Abduction Tactics for Children) Program is I believe as close as you can come to a foolproof safety training for children and even teenagers.
You can simply scroll back through the hundreds of posts on AAV and check out my posts, but, briefly KE jumps all over the sick psychology and goals of the Chicken Hawk or sexual predator looking to abduct innocent children and inevitably molest and kill them. Fact: It is a true rarity for a child, once taken from the initial crime scene, to ever return (home).
Allow me to boil this down into a few sentences. The predator wants to seek out, target, attack and abduct a child as quickly as possible. He has a clock ticking relentlessly in his head. The longer it takes to carry off his mission (get the kid), the louder that clock ticks. Ergo, what he requires and what he attacks is a child who appears to be:
- Inert (not moving)
- Gullible (this one is hard to tell until the predator is allowed to converse with the child. If he/she entertains a conversation, the chicken hawk is golden).
So, Kid Escape or CAT teaches kids to:
- Be not so quite.
- Be observant (let the miscreant know you see him)
- Move around.
- Be in a crowd, if possible, but, if not, be aware where others are and know whom to run to.
All that is well and good, but what are some things a child or teen can do if an adult gets too close? Close enough to gran him or her?
That will be my next post. Until then, stay safe.
