I just finished reading this article on stranger danger, and it makes a lot of sense to me:

I simply addressed it with my younger cousins as "do NOT go with anyone who is not ::insert short list of people::" (I was mostly raising these three, hence ME having to do this talk). I taught them to always be polite to everyone but to never ever ever let anyone touch them or try to get them to go with them, even if they (they being my cousin) approached the stranger first to introduce themselves.

I'm teaching Monkey to go find a mom with kids if he's lost.
