Our Children Are Very Important
April 21, 2017 | western
Recently River Oaks MHC experience someone coming into the park near the playground and flashed himself to a little girl; this is very disturbing. Before this incident a park in Ferris, TX experience the same action by a Spanish male in his early to mid 20’s. Thanks to a watchful neighbor they were able to get the license plate of this individual and it has been reported to the police. Parents please monitor your children at all times, it only takes seconds for something to happen.
Tell your kids that if a stranger ever approaches and offers a ride or treats (like candy or toys) or asks for help with a task (like helping find a lost dog), they should step away, yell "No!" and leave the area immediately. Your child should tell you or another trusted adult (like a teacher or childcare worker) what happened. The same goes if anyone — whether a stranger, family member, or friend — asks your child to keep a secret, tries to touch your child’s private area, or asks your child to touch theirs it should be reported IMMEDIATELY. So please ALWAYS watch your children at play or have a responsible adult if they are outside, there is nothing more important that can wait than our children.
