Lowering stranger danger awareness for children

I am not sure how safe it is to teach our kids to trust someone in a bus or a vehicle. I believe it might lower their awareness of stranger danger and it may be a little irresponsible to teach them it's okay to go inside the vehicle. Many predators use animals and toys and other ploys to attract children inside vehicles. I think the show should make a solid effort to make sure kids know it is never ok to speak to a stranger no matter how colorful the vehicle is or what kind of fun is promised inside. I know the parents are with them but the show needs to point out that a parent must always be with them before approaching strangers in vehicles.

Preschoolers and their parents will enjoy tuning into this colorful, upbeat series together, and the fact that it's full of kid-friendly recipes and art projects is, well, just icing on the cake. Wondering what to make for dinner so your picky preschooler will eat? Sean and Noodle have plenty of suggestions, and kids might be more inclined to help out in the kitchen -- and then eat the meal itself -- when the characters show them how fun cooking can be. Sean's crafting sessions will have a similar effect on youngsters, inspiring them to explore artistic expression with simple projects that are easily copied by families at home.
