Annotation: Intended for elementary and junior high school audiences, this film dramatizes some essential rules for children to remember when encountering strangers.
Abstract: Focusing on a police officer as the instructor in a classroom situation, the film suggests some important rules in meeting strangers. These include not riding with strangers or accepting gifts from them, avoiding lonely places or persons making physical overtures in movie theaters, not getting into cars with strangers, and not hitchhiking. Each rule is illustrated with a dramatized encounter between a child and a stranger, and the rules are repeated at the close of the film.
