Teaching children about strangers

The dangers of strangers! This is what a parent often worries about, the possibilities that their child will be abducted or murdered by a stranger. Although this is a rare occurrence compared to a traffic accident, it is also sensible to teach your child about the following:

• Never go with anyone (even someone they know well) without telling the grown-up who is looking after them.

• If somebody they don’t know tries to take them away, it is ok to scream and kick.

• Tell your children always to tell you, if they have been approached by someone they don’t know.

• Make sure your child knows what to do if she or he got lost.

• In a crowded place, it’s safest to stand still and wait to be found.

Otherwise:

• Tell a police officer

• Go to a shop and tell someone behind the counter

• Tell someone who has children with them.

Also, teach your child his or her home address and phone number or the phone numbers of some other responsible person.

Stunning Holiday Villas and Apartments in Majorca

If you are looking for a holiday accommodation in Majorca, then try this website called owners direct.com. I have been browsing around for a self-catering accommodation and landed on this website which I think is very interesting. The website offers a wide range selection of villas and apartments to let in Majorca, the place where I intend to visit in February.

Now, what I like about this website is that you will be dealing directly with the owner of the property and probably the most detailed property letting or property rental website I have ever seen. They have loads of accommodations to let, even in the most popular holiday destinations such as Puerto Pollensa, Alcudia, and Cala San Vincente. Villas in Puerto Pollensa are absolutely stunning! Most of them got a private swimming pool, beautiful garden and a terrace where you can relax and enjoy the sun.

I would say these are luxury type villas and the prices would differ based on amenities, facilities and size of the property, same as the Villas in Alcudia and Villas in Cala San Vicente. Well, there are loads of rental properties listed there, so if you look around the lists, you will surely find what you are looking for.
