Wayne Fears provides resources aimed at preventing a lost-child situation as well as steps to be taken to save time, resources and human life in the case of a missing child.
It has been said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. If you or someone you know has ever been involved in trying to locate a lost child, you know this statement certainly holds true.
“It is far easier to prepare yourself and your child for a lost-child situation than it is to go through the trauma of having a child missing,” Fears says.
In the guidebook, Fears adapts his great knowledge of wilderness survival to the goal of lost-proofing the child. He divides the book into lost-proofing in suburbia and lost-proofing in the woods. In the section on suburbia, Fears covers possible scenarios such as malls, public events, schools and sporting and church events. He discusses the reasons children wander off as well as providing strategies that teach safe behavior to children. He then provides a clear and perhaps life-saving procedure to follow if a child is lost. When discussing lost-proofing in the back country, Fears draws upon his wilderness expertise to provide the most thorough approach including strategies, rules each child must learn, practice and follow, proper visible clothing, and the building of a child’s survival kit. Fears’ discusses what to do if your child is missing and how lost children move. The book also provides a thorough discussion on hypothermia.
