Danny’s Father is Safe

Along with some policemen, we had just finished my presentation to my young students on “Street safety.”

To test the children on what they had absorbed, we started showing them photographs of adults in different situations and asked, “Is this a safe stranger?”

In response to the photo of an elderly lady, they chorused, “Yes!” To the policeman beside his squad car, they shouted, “Yes!” To the shady guy with a pipe wrench, they exclaimed, “No!” To the man beside a red truck, they yelled, “No!” – except for one youngster. He insisted, “Yes!” We repeated our instructions and asked the him again if he’d go with the man beside the truck. “Yes!” he still insisted.

“But Danny, why would you go with him when you wouldn’t go with the others?” I asked.

“Because he’s my dad,” the boy quickly replied.

“Okay guys! I think we all had it wrong, this is actually Danny’s father and there’s nothing to be afraid of,” I refrained.
