Every parent’s worst nightmare is having their child taken from them in a scenario where they have no control. These situations, while certainly rare, can happen at any time and place where our children are unprotected. It is up to us as the parents to ensure that our children know how to react if they are in a situation where someone is trying to take them.
In this video, you are about to witness a woman who has both of her children with her while she waits in a line. Her daughter, who is about 4-years-old, is only a few feet away from her when someone attempts a brazen daylight kidnapping. Had it not been for the child’s presence of mind to start screaming and make herself dead weight to the kidnapper, she may have been taken from her mother.
With only a few feet separating her from her daughter, the mother had almost no time to react to the situation. The attacker committed to the decision when he realized the daughter was out of arm’s reach from her mother, and that the mother was holding onto her baby which would prevent her from reacting fast. The child’s decision to immediately start screaming while pulling back against the attacker and becoming dead weight made the attacker change his mind, leave the child, and flat out run away from the scene of the attack.
It is important for every parent in the world to realize that situations like this can happen in the blink of an eye. Often, when situations like this occur, they happen with such speed and aggression from the attacker that there is little time to react to the scenario. You must teach your children how to react, so that without your immediate protection they can make the right decisions that will prevent them from being taken.
Law enforcement officials from the area were called, and after a short investigation the man was put in jail on charges of kidnapping.
You may have a plan to react.
Do your children?
