The little boy not only protected himself by hiding in a closet but he continued to provide information to the police about what was happening in the house.
The officers arrived in time to see the two men running in the woods. They were arrested later and so this story had a happy end. The mother of the little boy is proud of her son. In the local community he is treated as the little hero he is.
What is important here for all parents is to understand that giving a right education based on practical emergency information to their kids is the best way to protect them in various dangerous situations that can occur, preparing them at the same time to be good citizens in their life.
