To avoid unpleasant situations, explain to the child what the rules are to follow. Lately, on the single call 112, more and more complaints of disappearing children are being recorded. If some parents are lucky enough to find - after the police intervention - living and unharmed children lost at home, others, unfortunately, either find them dead or see them again for many years or never, as they are victims of human trafficking. In order to prevent the child from disappearing, it is best for the parent to be a good friend, as well as some advice given by him and obeyed precisely by the child, to keep him away from unpleasant events that have him as the main character.Here are the most important information you need to give your child. First of all, the little boy must know that he is not allowed, under any form, to enter into discussion with foreign persons; not to accept goods, gifts or sweets from people you do not know; not to accompany unknown persons regardless of where they are invited, especially if the place is not illuminated, dosed. Other than that, it is best not to give the children large amounts of money or valuables such as mobile phones, jewelry. If, however, you need to wear them, advise them not to keep them in sight.
Teach your child not to invite strangers into the home or not allow them access when those people request. During the night, do not leave your child unattended on the street or send him to shopping. Tell him that at the end of the class hours he will never go back to school alone, but in a group with other colleagues, or not to use unenlightened or friendly roads. If the little one is away from home, look for them in the house, checking the cabinets, under beds, storage rooms, cellars, basements, or in any other places, where your child might hide or fall. If you still cannot find it, immediately call the nearest police station or call toll free at the emergency number 112. If you have disappeared while you are in a store, inform the guard of the respective store and even the store staff. Then, immediately, announce the nearest police unit or call the emergency number 112. When notifying the event at the Police, communicate the child's name, date of birth, height, weight or any other particular elements or signs of nature to help identify urgency of the child. It also announces the moment you found the disappearance. Requires that the child's name and identification data be urgently entered into the database containing missing children.
