The reason I always told my DS to look for a mom with kids is because

#1 teaching kids to find a police officer won't help them at target, the mall, most anywhere really there just aren't police standing around.

#2 a mom with kids is most likely to make him feel comfortable and quickly be able to get help

#3 moms with kids are easy to find most places we go, target, the mall, the ball park, etc. The point is the faster they say, "hey, i'm lost" the faster we will be able to reunited. The longer they wander around looking for a police, store employee or cast memeber the more lost they may become.

We have never had trouble loosing track of DS. And I have always made it a point to help him learn his way around places, not just blindly following me. When DS was little I also started purposely walking around an aisle at target or something while still keeping an eye on DS to kind of test him and help him become more aware/responsbile for keeping track of me. I think those things also helped him be more prepared to be independant as at the age of 12 he now is becoming.
