Reports & Publications

Action Against Abduction 2014 review of ‘stranger danger’

Highlights inherent difficulties with the ‘out of date’ approach, looking at the main problems:

  1. Focusing attention on the threat from strangers can detract from the greater danger posed by someone known to children.
  2. Teaching children to be wary of strangers can inhibit them from seeking help if they are lost or in distress.
  3. Psychological studies have demonstrated that children of all ages struggle to distinguish a stranger from a non-stranger. Young children often think ‘nice-looking’ or ‘kind-sounding’ people are not strangers. Conversely, strangers are often perceived to all be ‘mean-looking’.
  4. Adults are often not consistent in applying rules not to talk to, or take things from, strangers.
