Seven year old Brittney Baxter was one aisle away from her mother in a Walmart when an ex-con attempted to kidnap her.
Young Brittnery, smartly, kicked and screamed the minute he picked her up even though he put his hand over her mouth to keep her quiet.
I've read waaaay too many statistics on child abduction rates versus abuse and homicides and if a child isn't found within the first 24 hours they will most likely never be found alive...if they're found.
Please teach your kids if you haven't already these techniques to keep them safe. And, of course, be careful about where you leave them alone. Especially in public.
