    Do you think people go overboard about paedophiles?

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

    Thinking they are on every corner.

    i don't think they are on EVERY corner, but they will be at a playground near you.

    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'

    Why do you think this?

    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.

    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

    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!

    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

    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.

    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
