Never assume your child will not be abducted, you should always act as though it could happen. It is important that you establish solid communication with your child and make sure that your child knows he/she can confide in you in case of trouble.
Teach your child the facts of abduction early. If handled simply as just another fact of life that needs to be acknowledged and dealt with, children need not be inordinately frightened by the idea of abduction.
A pedophile is usually an adult whose sexual preference is confined to youngsters. The classic pedophile preys on runaways or children from unhappy homes. He showers the child with affection. By the time sexual activity takes place, the child is often an uncomplaining partner and it goes unreported. Be aware of any adult that showers your child with an inordinate amount of attention and/or presents. No one should care more about your child than you.
