Anti-Abduction Classes for Kids
A Wisconsin community is making sure its kids know what to do in a dangerous situation.
They are hosting anti-abduction classes.
The program started after an 11 year old girl was almost taken earlier this month in a small town north of La Crosse.
Parents say these classes give their kids more confidence.
“You know at home we try to tell them the right thing, try to tell them what to do but this just strengthens our position, strengthens the things that we're trying to teach our kids, giving them the skills to respond to situations they may be put into,” says parent Dave Molling.
The classes teach kids about awareness and self-defense techniques like grip-breaking strategies so kids can wrestle free and run away.
