Are we better parents now or have we just lost control of our streets.


Are the threats to children's safety so much greater now then they were thirty years ago, or are we just more overprotective, or better informed? In any case, how do you think this will affect children's self confidence when they become adults?

    Thanks for your answer, I know exactly what you mean, but I wonder if frighting children makes them any wiser. I also wonder how real the danger is. I mean, are there so many more pedophiles now, if so why?

    True, but maybe the news is inflating dangers and preying on our natural protective instincts. If the problem is as bad as it seems why don't we take steps to join together to protect our kids, like a beefed up neighborhood watch.
