Do you think parents are overprotective these days? It seems like kids can’t have a childhood these days. You probably could blame it on the news, as it seems like every day, you hear/see things about kids being kidnapped, molested, murdered, and otherwise abused. Concern is one thing, paranoia is another! Parents, while it is true that these things happen, it doesn’t meant that it will automatically happen to your child. Let them get out and play, just keep an eye on them, and teach them how to deal with strangers!
