I hope that the cops will resolve this issue as soon as possible. Public places like parks, dim streets, abandoned buildings, are only a few of the places where attempted rape cases like this happen. As parents, we need to inform our children especially the young teens about this matter. Yet, we cannot deny the fact that we can't always watch over them especially at work. So, I tried searching for solutions and luckily I read an article which featured a safety app which gets me connected to a safety network or escalate my call to the nearest 911 when needed, it has other cool features that are helpful for your kids.
