Safety for Pil-Am Kids?

Recommended Posts

We are in the States now, but planning on returning for good. Maybe. I am an Immigrant in the RP, so it is my home.

Last time we were there though, lots of people were telling me to NEVER bring my children out of the home, as they will be abducted.

I got this all the time when I went out. Like, you can't take your kids out anywhere?

Organs harvesting, sex videos, or, just to be raised by someone and they can pretend they are their own.

Anyone have any input on this?

OK, seriously just who are these "lots of people" telling you your children will be abducted and worst?  I've never ever heard once case of a foreigner child abducted unless by a parent in a custodial dispute. If the parent is Filipino they have all the rights the Foreigner parent has none.

People. People at SM. People on the street. Just random strangers always came up to me and said "Is that your child? You should not take them outside. Someone will want to take them as their own child. Just to warn you."

It was rather unsettling.

Honestly there is very little risk your child will be abducted although no good parent would not let them wander around unattended. In 1998 I visited rural Southern Leyte with my seven year old blond blue eyed boy. He was the talk of the small towns we stayed at lots of friendly smiles and nice comments. Both my younger son's had similar reactions but always respectful and kind.

Lots of kids lying in the street dead with their body cut open and organs missing. You get used to it after awhile. :smile:

Maybe this poster has knowledge we don't, all foreign children I've seen over there are pampered by the PI's, rich or poor. :SugarwareZ-004:

Specifically, where did you have this experience?

I don't think I could ever get used to it.

OK I found this on Google.

 in 2011 there were 24 kidnapping incidents in the Philippines.  In 2010 there were 41 cases.  So, at worst case, the number of kidnappings in the Philippines were only 10% of USA kidnappings of children.  The population of the Philippines is about 1/3 of the US population, so on a per capita basis, kidnapping in the USA is more than 3 times more rampant than in the Philippines.  And, I am really figuring this in a way that is in the favor of the US, because the 41 (2010) kidnapping cases are all kidnapping cases (adult and children) and the USA figures are only for children..

I know these are old figures but it does make you think.
