Fight like your life depends on it. Scream at the top of your lungs, kick the stranger very hard, and even roughly bite their hand if you need to. Do whatever you possibly can to escape. Squirming helps too! The stranger should drop you and scurry since kidnappers hate attention.The stranger may try covering your mouth. If that does happen, keep screaming, and kick just as hard.
Below are some suggestions on what you can scream:
- “Let me go!“
- “You’re not my mom!“
- “You’re not my dad!“
- “Somebody, help me!“
- “Call the police!“
- Stranger Danger!

Tell the adult that you were grabbed by a stranger. The adult should contact emergency services immediately.
- Learn the phone number of your parents, siblings, best friends, and the police. If you can’t remember things well, make a note and keep it in your pockets.
- If you suspect a stranger is following you, walk in a loop around a block to be sure.
- Never choose the lesser crowded lane to run if you see a more crowded place.
- If you see a group appearing like they are a family, ask them to call your parents.
- A mall or a shop can be safe to find more people. Run inside one if around and use their phone to make a call to the police by dialing 911 (if you live in USA).
- Carry some coins with you, just in case.
