Then we learned that strangers are only a... fraction of the offenders out there. Most are people you see every day - your family, your neighbors, schoolteachers. You know the rest. Prepared our children for 1% of the danger, made them more vulnerable to 99%. So we've been wrong before. All we can do is learn from it, and hopefully be better next time." That is absolutely true. We spend so much time telling them to avoid people they don't know, when it's most often those they do know who are their predators. The time would be better spent teaching them when and how (loudly) to say 'no'. And whom to confide in afterwards. 3 Link to comment
