Yarmey, A. Daniel; Rosenstein, Susan R.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v12 n3 p355-61 1988
Sixty-eight children aged 5, 8, and 12, and 61 of their parents, were questioned about their children's safety knowledge. Parents were most accurate in predicting their children's understanding of strangers and trust in police. Children's knowledge levels and parents' predictive accuracy differed as functions of the children's age and sex. (Author/JDD)
