How do you react when you see a child alone and in danger?


Recently I stopped a toddler from running into traffic. He was barely talking or walking, couldn't find his mother, and was and crying. I had to pick him up to get him to safety and then carry him around until we found the mother. The sad part was --I felt uncomfortable doing this normal thing! Kids are taught not to trust strangers, and adults are taught to leave children alone-- But what about when it is okay?

    I get how that would be annoying, especially as you know your child and you know that he knows your rules. We have similar rules, and neighbours often peek in to check I'm aware she's outside, (not realising that I am watching through the window!)

    I am usually calm in an emergency-type situation (and react later). Good comment. I taught preschool for a long time and I remember there was the three-second hug rule. Of course it is necessary, but sad too
