Stranger Danger

Stranger Danger

In this vlog, Susan applies a Self-Reg lens to the question of whether or not giving children the message that strangers are dangerous really makes them safer.

She shares her personal opinion that it might be better to help kids develop their own internal compass and learn to trust their instincts about people in order to be safe. She invites viewers to share their ideas about this sometimes controversial issue.

    I think we can teach “neurotypical” children exactly what you are saying, as long as they have an ability to develop their interoceptive and memory systems. This is very difficult to do for children with special needs and can be done within certain relationship based therapies that also build thinking and links to episodic memories. In these situations, caregivers create these sorts of rules but, as you state, they often don’t serve most situations very well.
