I know I have no children but I think sometimes people go a bit overboard.

Thinking they are on every corner.

maybe... only because it floods the news though, if people weren't so absorbed in newspapers and the news there wouldn't be as much as an 'epidemic'

So would I but I think you can make your child scared of other humans too much.

I was never told about them when I was young.

sometimes maybe but you find the people that go overboard are those that have had things happen to them in the past.i do myself go overboard and wont let anyone have my daughter to stay over only my parents.i do live next door to a school and there was once a pedo hanging around there flashing his bits found out that he had been locked up before for this and when released they put him at the end of my street now thats wrong right near a primary school.

my children have both been dragged up to know all dangers, it doesnt make them scarred of human beings, its makes them sensible and aware of whats out there

i agree you could make them too scared...but like some-one mentioned on another thread about letting their kid run around naked on the beach.....now thats something i wouldnt do....your just inviting trouble (my opinion)...

You just do what you can do with making your child scared of every person

Did you make them aware that it was statistically for more likely that a family member would abuse them than a stranger ever would?

i am a nevous wreak lol i am always looking over my shoulder when i go out aspecially at night but then again if i had to go out late at night on my own then i will take the dog with me lol.

I think it's right to be cautious of your childs safety HOWEVER I think things have gone to far. We are in a country now, where everyone is vetted for everything, everyone is a potential paedo, you have pediatrician's being attacked in their own home as people can't think or read, unless it' what a red-top says.

All this caution and vetting fails one major thing, statistically your child is more likely to be abused by a family member or close friend than a random stranger or worker.

who in the right mind would warn children of a paedo... its well and good warning about stranger danger and such, but as someone said above... you dont want to make a child be scared of other humans... let them grow up to figure that out themselves!
#23
nervous wrecks? DLM i think your going overboard on that one :roll:

my children all know the dangers, yet they are all confident kids, there are ways of teaching without scaring

They never had a name when I was young, but I remember 'stranger danger' etc being taught at school, used to have me terrified if a car happened to slow down near me, lol, I'd run a mile:-D


I remember something like that. It taught us that if a grown up gave us sweets, they were expecting sex.

Made things awkward when I met my uncle for the first time and he gave me a mars bar.:oops::oops:

i dont agree with that one you cannot expect them to grow up and learn. i do think you should only tell them of pedos at a suitable age though. younger kids do the stranger danger thing.

there are ways round helping to protect children, you dont have to mention words like peados and relatives touching them, blah, blah, blah, maybe when you have children you will understand

I agree with this all the people I know that have been abused.

It was their grandfather or father that abused them.

but i do think kids should made aware as soon as a parent thinks their ready to....then alteast if they come accross a paedo then know whats happening..rather then the paedo making it look like a game etc....

each kid/parent i individual so its upto the parent to decide when they feel is the right time to tell their kid

saying 'paedo' isnt going to mean anything to a kid is it, you get told not to accept sweets/go off with/etc strangers...thats what that is!

No, I mean it is common for people to be abused by their families not strangers.
