10 Life-Saving Safety Tips that Could Potentially Save You and Your Child’s Life

By Carmen Ordonez |

I remember being 7-years-old walking with my older sister to grab the mail. In a blink of an eye, I remember a blue old car pull up next to me. Inside was a heavy-set man with red short hair. He told me to get inside his car — he was going to give me candy. Having been taught stranger danger, I immediately started to scream and run. The man quickly did a U-turn and sped off. The police were called, but he was never found.  Twelve years later, that story still brings me chills. I was very fortunate that day, and unfortunately that is not the case for the many children that go missing.
