Talk To Your Kids

So that maybe you won't have to suffer the scare this family did today:

So my 6 yr old niece didn't realize mommy and big sis were still in the house and got it in her head she and her little brother were left alone when daddy left with the car. So she decided to take care of the 3 yr old and go find a babysitter - some friends who live several blocks away. When my sister came downstairs, they were gone. Long gone. Empty field with big cliff not far back behind their house. New development with plenty of opportunity to snatch some kids off the street with no-one noticing. She searched and called for almost 1/2 hr before she called me - could not find them. The would be babysitter friends weren't home, but some other neighbors saw them and stayed with them til daddy drove back into the neighborhood and saw them and got them home....

I don't know the answers but these came to mind: Sounds like its time to teach 6 y/o (I have one) a different way to solve this solution. 1. DO NOT GO OUT OF THE HOUSE UNLESS IT IS ON FIRE. 2. lock all the doors. 3. call mommy or daddy's cell phone and if you can't get them: 4. call 911.

Thanks for passing the word to hopefully prevent a repeat of this for someone else.
