Have you all had the "strangers" conversation with your Blossom yet? We've brought up a few variations of it a few times in the past couple of years. He knows that if he ever gets lost, he can tell a policeman or fireman his name, his mommy's name and his daddy's name. But when I bring up the strangers conversation - no talking to strangers, not getting in stranger's cars, etc, he doesn't seem to understand. Here's how part of a recent conversation went:
Me: So, Tyler...you remember that we don't talk to strangers, right?
Me: yeah, someone you don't know. We don't talk to people we don't know, right.
Tyler: Mommy, we should play nice with all our friends.
Me: Yes, that's true. But if someone you don't know comes up and talks to you and mommy and daddy aren't there, you walk away, ok?
Tyler: What's his name?
Me: I don't know - that's why he is a stranger. And you don't get in anyone's car unless mommy or daddy is there to help you in, right?
Tyler: But what's his name?
Me: I don't know, Tyler. That doesn't matter - only that we don't know him. OR her.
Tyler: What's her name?
And that's how our conversation ends. He gets caught up on that question and doesn't let go. LOL. I know that he's still young and that by just having the conversation casually from time to time, something will sink in. At least, I hope. I feel like I going about this blindly. How do you all do it?
