With sex crimes against children* on the increase, it is up to us par- i cnts to do everything we can to guard and protect'our own children., How ought we to go about It? It seems to me that parents can cut down on the danger to children by taking a few simple .precautions, our children the fact thai they are First.of aH, we must on our children the fact that they are, under no circumstances, to get into a stranger's car,''accept a gift from stranger, enter a building on a stranger's invitation, or believe frhat the stranger who makes a Suss over them is "just a nice'man who likes children." , Much as we may hate to Implant any fears in our children, the world today requires that we do tench them to fear some things. They have to be taught to know that a car or a gim can kill. They have'to be warned agaiast playing with lire, and so on. And it Is every bit as important, il not more so, tnat we be Just as realistic when it comes to protecting our children from the sex criminals who are in o\ir midst. After-School Hours Are Dangerous : There .are several other precautions we can make also. We can make sure that our school children never come home to an empty house; that if they walk to and from school they are taught not-to play aiongMhe way. Teachers could h'elp by finding some form of punishment other than keeping children after school. For if Susie is occasionally kept ln f her mother has no way of knowing whether to be worried or not when she Is halt an hour late getting home from school, And we can be careful where bur children play, making It anr business to know if an adult is at home at Johnny's before saying our own child can go to his house to piny. If we d-n't take those simple precautions , we aren't doing wha we can to protect our children against a very real danger; executive Meeting s Conducted A.I p.m. luncheon Friday at the :. W. Affllck home preceded the lusfness meeting of the Executiv Board of (he WMD of the First Bap- Ist Church.
