What advice you can give your kids ...
Talk through possible scenarios such as :
- A nice-looking stranger approaches your child in the park and asks for help finding the stranger's lost dog.
- A woman who lives in your neighborhood but that the child has never spoken to invites your child into her house for a snack.
- A stranger asks if your child wants a ride home from school.
- Your child thinks he or she is being followed.
- An adult your child knows says or does something that makes him or her feel bad or uncomfortable.
- While your child is walking home from a friend’s house, a car pulls over and a stranger asks for directions.
What can parents do:
- Know where your children are at all times. Make it a rule that your children must ask permission or check in with you before going anywhere. Give your children your work and cell phone numbers so they can reach you at all times.
- Point out safe places. Show your children safe places to play, safe roads and paths to take, and safe places to go if there’s trouble.
- Teach children to trust their instincts. Explain that if they ever feel scared or uncomfortable, they should get away as fast as they can and tell an adult. Tell them that sometimes adults they know may make them feel uncomfortable, and they should still get away as fast as possible and tell another adult what happened. Reassure children that you will help them when they need it.
- Teach your children to be assertive. Make sure they know that it’s okay to say no to an adult and to run away from adults in dangerous situations.
- Encourage your children to play with others. There’s safety in numbers!

The sun is shining, and we're banging out the summer tunes ...
So it made sense to ask Cornwall to fill in the blank:
You know it's summer in Cornwall when...
Here are your texts!
You know it's summer in Cornwall when...there are roadworks everywhere.
...it starts raining.
...you get red, itching, streaming eyes, and start sneezing.
...all the emits come down on holiday because they wear socks and sandals.
...Neil is wearing his Speedos. (Yuck!)
...the smell of barbecue fills the evening air.
...the rain gets warmer.
...every one is happier.
...people moan about the smell of farms.
...you need to leave your pasty cool down a bit before you can eat it.
...the great summer festivals start.
...it's sunny one day then rains the next.
...you cannot get into A&E for people with sunburn.
...the country lanes become jammed.
...the seagulls start stealing our food from our hands.
...you can smell suntan lotion.
...Neil is strutting on the beach in his mankini. (Double yuck!)
...you see the Flambards plane and banner in the sky.
...when people wear clothes they should not wear.
...a normal 10 minute drive takes 3 hours and 45 minutes.
What d'ya reckon?

It's Tell The Truth Day, so, for one hour only, you could ask Neil and Tina anything!
Tina was worried "You don't get to my age without having a few secrets!"
Here's what happened:
Listener Emma was shocked by the revelation of how old we are!
Have to say, shocked at the age reveal this morning, really didn't think you guys were that old! Radio life is obviously good for you both 😊 Emma X
Not sure how we should respond to that!
