The mother of a five-year-old child has reinforced the need for parents to teach their children about the danger of strangers after an unknown woman approached her son in a skate park and offered them an ice cream.
In a post on Facebook, the mother said she was at the Alexandra Headland skate park in Queensland on Wednesday afternoon when she saw an unknown woman "in a striped shirt" talking to her son.
She had been watching her son do laps at the skate park and added that he was only 200 meters away when he saw the woman approaching her child.

"Immediately I got up and went to them, she left," the woman wrote.
"I asked my son what he was saying, he said that she was asking about the skate and then asked if he wanted an ice cream.
The woman's son said he had not spoken to the lady who had approached him and, instead, lowered his head and waited for his mother.
This was the code between the mother and her son for when she feels uncomfortable.
The mother, originally from Brazil, told Daily Mail Australia that she reported the incident to the police Thursday morning.
"I think I did the right thing, I tried not to give importance to my son," he said.
"I've been here for almost 10 years, I always feel safe in Australia, but I fought today."
The main message that the mother wanted to share was that "it's never too early to teach children about safety."
He added that the main message he wanted to share with people was that it is never too early to teach children to be cautious with strangers.
"Please, reinforce your children so they do not talk to strangers," concluded his publication on Facebook.
Daily Mail Australia also spoke with Queensland police, who said it was a "mental health incident that is no longer being investigated."
