A Message for All of Us: Child Safety Tips from Pudtol PNP

In light of this tragic incident, the Pudtol PNP has released important safety tips to protect our children:

  • Stop leaving your kids with the boyfriends you barely know, stop letting each family member take care of them because it's free. Child Abuse, rape, kidnapping, abuse, etc, is real and is a wound that will never heal.

  • Children should not go to the store alone.

  • Children don't stay in the car when you quickly run to buy something, even if it's close.

  • Children should not be used to walk with anyone.

  • Children should not go out to play without supervision.

  • Older siblings should not be responsible for taking care of their younger brothers and sisters.

  • Children should not be in an environment where alcohol is consumed, even if it seems quiet.

  • Children should not be near unstable people or with bad customs.

  • Children should not sleep in one house after another.

  • Children should not live with all friends of dad or mom; it's not necessary, as not all are good people.

  • Children do not have the decision in their hands.

  • They don't know of danger.

  • They don't know evil.

  • They don't know hate.

  • They don't know that there are people with bad intentions.

Children are innocent and naive; they are children! Our responsibility is to protect them from everything and everyone, even if they are not our own children. The times that children now live will never be the same as when we were small. Let's take care of the kids always! Let's become better parents.

Conclusion: Honoring a Precious Life and Protecting Our Children

As we reflect on the tragedy that unfolded in Mataguisi, our hearts go out to the child and her grieving family. This heartbreaking incident serves as a somber reminder of the importance of safeguarding our children.

We must protect our children from harm, whether it be from strangers, unsafe environments, or negligence. The safety tips shared by the Pudtol PNP are invaluable guidelines that can help ensure our children grow up in a secure and nurturing environment.

In honor of all innocent children, let us strive to become better parents, caregivers, and community members. Let us collectively work to create a world where our children can grow, learn, and play in safety and happiness, free from the shadows of tragedy.

I shoot the stars with him.
