Yeh, but he created that name 11 years ago when he joined, so I guess he's actually Red66 now?
I think that most logical parents know that it's a big, scary world out there, and you cannot literally protect your kids.
However, there are certainly better practices than others in the effort to keep your kids as safe as possible. I've seen kids around the age of my 7-year-old walking down city streets without an adult. I wouldn't let my kids do that.
I was being a smartass to you but forgot to quote your response. So, now I look like even more of an imbecile. damn.
The year you were born doesn't change.
No, you can't "protect" them, but you CAN teach them. Point out who the crazies are when you are out on the street, tell them what parts of town to stay away from and who to associate with and whatnot. Sure it is stereotypical, political incorrect, and all that other mamby pamby pussyfoot shit that this kinder more gentle world tells us not to do. Screw that. Even these measures aren't 100% but I'll be damned if I won't make sure my kids know what a freak looks like.
The absolute WORST. Just want to kick their asses but I'm pretty sure its against the law.
Sure, but they'll remember 10% of what you tell them and 50% of what they experience.
I was making a point because I thought previous poster might have been implying things are worse now, which they almost never are. Crime is lower now and America is basically better and safer in almost every possible way than anywhere in history.
I was talking to my dad recently and he was bemoaning what he believes is a more morally bankrupt society, as if are heading in the wrong direction in terms of violence and moral decay. The opposite is true, I don't think most people realize this.
You may be right, but it certainly doesn't seem that way; especially when it comes to violence. 'Back in the day', you never had lunatics mowing down babies at school or flying planes into buildings. I guess they had their own tragedies, like Pearl Harbor and such. But since I wasn't around to experience them, I don't equate them to the things that have happened in my lifetime.
