Keep Our Children Safe!

Life's Treasures!
Hey y'all! It seems like every time I turn on my television I see something to do with kids. Children being kidnapped, murdered or abused. I cannot comprehend how anyone can harm children. They are just innocent little lives.

  As most of everyone has heard, 3 woman were found after a decade of being kidnapped as teenagers. This is such a rare outcome to most of these situations. Such a happy one. These ladies lives will be forever changed due to what they had to endure. It will take a lot of healing. I pray for these women and their families to have peace in their lives.  I am trying to find out if there is a way to donate to help any way possible but I have not found anything. When I do I will update you all with the information.

Here is a link for this story if you are interested in learning  more.

Keep our babies safe!

I am a very concerned mother and I worry about my children every waking moment it seems. Knowing that people in this world are out there hunting down our babies. Our children are so trust worthy. My children like to say hey to everyone they see.

I live in an apartment so everyday I see children outside playing. Most of them have no adult supervision. Parents might start calling them in when it gets dark, but that to me isn't enough to keep our kids out of the hands of these monsters. My sister told me she seen an interview on t.v. about a man who was a convicted child molester. He told the reporter he would scope out apartment complexes and trailer parks because he knew a lot of kids would be unsupervised.

So innocent!
Now I'm not saying you can't let your children go play outside. I just want parents to realize the danger and make sure to keep an eye on your children at all times. Things like this easily happens at the park when you take your site off of your kids for just a second. I've seen on the news a little girl in the toy aisle at the store, and her mother wasn't too far away when a man came up and grabbed her. Thankfully the little girl fought back and screamed and got enough attention he let her go and she escaped.

Not only are our children being targeted outside the home, now they are being targeted inside the home also.
Our kids love the internet and social media. Adults are posing as teenagers to get to know our kids. They get them to trust them and then get them to meet them. This is their chance to harm or kidnap children. Parents you all need to monitor all your children's social media sites. Sit down with them and go through it see their friends and messages. If something to your is not appropriate or you see people you don't approve of make them remove them from their site. Also a great way to monitor is to move that computer out of their rooms and into the living room. Keep it in a more public part of the house and not in their room. These are your kids and they don't need as much privacy as they would like!

It happens everywhere. I want to give you some links to help keep our children safe I hope these help you to better prepare you and your children against these creeps!
