Fear And Loathing…

Parents of children at a Hull primary school have been sent warning letters after a girl was approached by two men in a car.

Linda Burrows, head teacher of Endike Primary School, has instructed her staff to talk to their classes about "stranger danger".
Good advice!

Over to the parents:
Parents collecting their children from the school in Endike Lane, north Hull, told the Mail they were concerned but pleased the school and police appeared to be taking the matter seriously.

Laura Heogh, 27, whose children, Harry, 7, Charlotte, 6, and Thomas, 3, are pupils at the school, said: "I have told my kids if they are ever lost, they must go into a shop and speak to a lady, if possible, rather than a man."
Ah. OK. Right. If you say so, love…

Fortunately they were a bit better at teaching this at my son's pre-school. Perhaps a bit too much better. When queueing for the London Eye with his mum, who had got chatting to a lady in the queue, he tugged on her dress and said, "Stop talking to her. Stranger Danger!".

That's fair enough, Rose West and Myra Hindley don't work in shops.

Well done to the feminists, the majority of child abuse is committed by women...but lets ignore that for the benefit of male-bashing.

Perhaps we will get another tragedy like that one a few years back when a man was scared to intervene with a little girl who had gone missing, only for her to end up drowned.

Women....they are all the same!!! Going to play that silly.....you see what i did there!!!

"Perhaps we will get another tragedy like that one a few years back when a man was scared to intervene with a little girl who had gone missing, only for her to end up drowned."

I remember that one. Awful story.

"At one time kids would be told to ask the nice policeman /lady for help but of course......"

There's always the nice PCSO. Round our way, they look about as young as the children, so there's that...

"When it comes to "Stranger Danger", this should be required viewing for all undedr 5s."

LOL!
