Child Safety Tip….Maybe

  I’m not a parent.  I don’t have children, but I’ve worked with children a lot and this “tip” just seems paranoid.  It’s a nice idea in theory, but what if you have more than one child?  What if you’re a single parent?  “Take a second, make it a habit and take a picture.”  If you have normal children, making them stand still long enough to take a picture before you enter the amusement park will be an olympic feat.

I’m not saying this is a bad idea, because it isn’t.  It’s just unrealistic.  Besides, if your child is kidnapped from an amusement park, the first thing the abductors will change is your child’s clothing.

    Only if a kidnapper came prepared to abduct a child that day would they have the new clothing to change the child into. Most crimes of this nature are ones of opportunity.

    If a picture is posted on an amber alert it at least gives law enforcement and other people a chance to notice before the abductor gets the child to a secondary location where they can then do whatever they will with them.
