|The lady said to her "make sure you can still see mommy." And I said "I can see her, that is the most important thing."|

I am so careful about watching my kids in crowded places, but I think even I at times expect too much out of my 5yo. I know he doesn't stress fearing losing your child in public, but this chapter makes me fear it a little more actually. I do tell him to stay by me, or hold my hand, but I don't then remove my attention from him. It's good to be reminded though, that most little kids really shouldn't be held responsible for not getting lost.
My parents and I had a special whistle we use to find each other. It was reassuring when I couldn't see them and we used it to find each other in stores all the time. Now DH and my BFF know it.
Something for older kids, 6-7 up? I'll have to ask when my folks taught us that.
Has anyone actually heard people telling their kids not to talk to strangers? I have and I always have to bite my tongue.
