WATCH: This video illustrates how easy it is to abduct a child.
Even though the children in the video above have been taught not to talk to strangers, they willingly and without hesitation accompany the stranger to “see the puppies”.
Several mothers in the park were told of the experiment, and consented, only to be shocked to see their children lured away from the playground by a friendly stranger with a puppy.
Researchers remind parents that strangers do not necessarily appear scary or ominous. In fact, they’re most often friendly and charming.
These videos were made to show parents how vulnerable and gullible children are.
