I suppose I should have spoke about this subject sooner because today arrived a box from my mom with some books including this one:
So why is this all wrong, all bad?
Well, because the chances of child being assaulted or kidnapped by a strangers are smaller than being struck by lightening. Children are more likely to be in car accidents. And if there is a case of assault or kidnapping, it normally involves someone the child knows, not a stranger. So there's no point in scaring children.
So what is a parent to do? Nothing. No, not exactly. We can talk about if something bad happens like someone is touching them inappropriately that they need to tell someone. And if they are approached by a stranger that it's perfectly fine to talk to them. Just don't go off with them or get into their car. And if they need to, go find help even if they don't know the person. Most adults are harmless.
What am I going to do with the book? No clue. I suppose I should ask my mom where she got and return it for another one. Because I have no plans on reading it to the boys. Ever.
