There is nothing more terrifying for parents than losing track of their child, even if it is for just a few moments. Their world turns upside down until the child is found and it is the biggest fear that parents can face in their lifetime. There is probably not a parent alive that has not experienced that dreadful feeling of hysterically looking for their child in a crowded place. It only gets worse as the children get older. Parents have to worry about who their children spend time with and if they leave the school grounds in a timely fashion or stay within the safe perimeters their parents establish for them. The question is how parents can give their children independence and freedom to make their own choices while ensuring their safety. All children enjoy exploring new places, playing with their friends and having fun in outdoor environments. Naturally, this brings along certain safety challenges and potential dangers for the kids. There are a lot of predators and hidden dangers at every corner that awaits the children.
The world is not as safe as it used to be for children anymore. People used to entrust their kids to next-door neighbors or let them enjoy their free time in their front yards and playgrounds. However, with the meteoric rise in the number of missing and abducted children over the years, nowadays parents hesitate to take their eyes off their precious children even for a second. A child goes missing every 3 minutes in the UK, and that alone should be enough to send a shiver down your spine if you are a parent.
