Children are very trusting and will find it hard to resist saying hello to a cute puppy, regardless if the dog’s owner is a stranger.
YouTuber Joey Salads wanted to see if children would heed their parents advise to not to talk to strangers if they saw a person with a puppy. He asked permission from their moms first before approaching the child with his dog.
As the video shows, he found it was actually quite easy to lure the the children over to him. It soon becomes clear is that parents shouldn’t be overconfident about their kids’ safety. Joey’s simple social experiment shows what a real and frightening situation this could be if kids aren’t educated fully about all the possible scenarios of “stranger danger”.
What do you think is the best way to teach children about this kind of danger?
