Strangers phobia among children
Parents teach their children that strangers are bad and cannot be trusted. Some kids develop the fear of unknown people for this. At any gathering, they try to seek their immediate family to even talk. This may be a good thing, right?

But later in life, this can be very problematic. As an adult, they may find it hard to make new friends and become shy. This social separation can lead to anxiety and other mental issues.
The heart-melting story of two strangers
In the middle of a football game, a kid named Isaiah walked up to a complete stranger woman. He crawled in her motherly lap. The lady didn't mind at all and welcomed the sweet child with open arms. She patted and rocked him to sleep like she had given birth to him.
According to the child's Mother,
It was the sweetest thing for anyone to witness.
She later found the kind lady, Mrs. Angela. She is a mom to a 15-year-old child.
Among all of the racial tension going on, such lovely happenings make us glad. Seeing that color doesn’t matter to a lot of people. It’s awesome, how many people noticed this story and claimed it touched their hearts.
Safety from unknown people is important too
While there are good people, there are harmful ones too. Some nice human makes us more believing and trusting. But kids should always be on their guard.
