Shocking Social Experiment Shows How Easy It Is For A Stranger To Abduct A Child

Youtube prankster Joey Salads has parents around the world on edge after he posted a social experiment video that shows just how easy it can be for strangers to abduct their children. By approaching children with a cute dog named Donuts, he was able to lure children away from the playground, hand-in-hand, by promising them more puppies to pet.

Before approaching each child, Salads approached their parents to explain the experiment and ensure that he had their permission to test their child’s reaction. Each of the parents featured in the video were certain that their child would shy away from Joey, running back to mom instead. They were wrong.

“Over 700 children are abducted a day. That’s over a quarter-million a year,” Salads explains. “Are your kids safe?”

Over 700 children are abducted a day. This is HOW EASY it is:

KID #1

“If I go over to your kid right now, will he or she talk to me or run away?”

“Look at the puppy!”

“I’ve got some more puppies, wanna go see the other puppies?”

“Yeah!”

This mom was 100% sure that her child wouldn’t go with a stranger

KID #2

“Hey! You like puppies?”

“Wanna go see the other puppies? I’ve got a BUNCH of them!”

KID #3

“You like the puppies, right?”

“You wanna go see the other puppies?”

“Just because you see somebody with a dog doesn’t mean you go home with them… they could take you and you won’t be with mommy anymore”

Here’s the FULL video if you missed it:

You should not count on your child to have the maturity make distinctions between "stranger" and an agreeable looking person.

I know this post is crazy old BUT: You should be wary of all strangers. Period. It's an invaluable lesson EVERYONE should teach their children. Telling your child "Never walk off with a stranger" is extremely important. Like it or not sometimes you can't watch your child. What if someone steals them on a field trip? During school? What about after school activities? You can and HAVE to trust your child to make good decisions about their safety. Not giving them that knowledge is just as bad as disregarding their safety yourself.
