I’ve spent the morning thinking about Gavin, as I often find myself doing. I’m worried about a million different things with him however, I realized that we have a very serious problem when it comes to him that I hadn’t thought about.
As Gavin continues to cognitively regress, it becomes increasingly more obvious that he can’t be left to his own devices.
Here’s my concern. I’m not even sure what triggered this thought but it’s definitely a concern.
If Gavin were ever approached by a stranger and asked to either get into their car or go with them, he would very likely do it.
That’s really, really scary.
We’ve talked to Gavin about this countless times, as we have with Elliott and Emmett.
With Gavin however, I truly don’t think he understands the dangers. I have no idea how to address this issue. I was wondering what your child would do if presented with the same scenario?
I think this is something that warrants further discussion.
Let talk about this and share our personal experience and help each other to keep our kids safe.
