There are many incidents occurring where kids and teenagers are getting abducted by strangers and/or by neighbors. This is a worldwide problem that many people are going through, whether they personally are victims of it or not, and a lot of people go through pain and the suffering because of child abduction. Many children get separated from their parents by force, destroying the happiness of many families, and giving many different psychological disorders, including PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), anxiety issues, hyperarousal, hyper vigilance, dissociation, and/or disorientation, to individuals which affects their social life for their lifetime. Although many tried to come up with a way to resolve or reduce this problem through different methods, like having magazine articles, showing it on news, or developing movies about it, they have not been working out well. The ones who really need to be informed are children themselves. However, reading an article or watching serious news are not really going to help kids to be informed enough about what abduction is, because those methods target adults, not kids. When it comes to an actual event of abduction, children can’t really do anything (they would just freeze most of the times) simply because they are not aware of it. children are not informed enough about what abduction is, how it happens, and what they should do when it happens. Although there are many movies and TV shows about abduction, they are very different from what actually happens and kids get wrong ideas about what really goes on because kids are more related to the action, super heroes, and the fun of fiction movies. Kids and teenagers are the ones who need to be informed and prepared. This is certainly a global issue that adults around the world need to solve.
