Don't talk to strangers

I was walking to my vehicle in the Walmart parking lot when I saw a child zooming around her family's vehicle.

Dad was outside keeping an eye on her.

Mom was in the minivan changing a diaper.

The child was very chatty.

So was the dad.

As we parted ways I remembered a piece of advice that had been useful to me when my kids were that ages.

"A stranger is anybody whose last name you do not know."

It is not a perfect piece of advice but it has the advantage of being easy to teach and apply.
