A. I do not know if you are being stalked exactly but something strange is going on. You should tell your parents immediately. Tell them that this man has been looking at you and smiling and that you have seen him several times in the past few days. Don’t go back to this shopping center without a parent or an adult. If you are out and see him following you, you should call the police. Please tell your parents and do not go out alone without an adult. Do not get near this man and call the police on him if he comes near you. Please write again if you have any more questions.
