    As a society we have dragged the children through increasing divorce and broken homes, multiple families, physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, often times poverty and abandonment. I sat with a friend of mines 8 year old the other day and he told me all the “rules of engagement” when he was approached by strangers, his list of memorized phone numbers in case he needed help (he has a cell phone, just in case), not accepting rides (or any offers) from anyone that wasn’t known by his family, and on and on. He isn’t allowed to ride his bike out of the “approved area” unless he is with his parents. He has been seriously studying Tai Quan Dao for two years and can kick hard and fast enough to drop an adult. He already knows a series of defense moves to ward off an adult. We live in a pretty safe neighborhood but obviously that’s no guarantee any longer. It’s sad and made me appreciate how good I had it as a kid.

    Can’t have your innocence, kid, but how would you like your very own Glock? You can even get a concealed weapons permit.

    Give it a rest. You are looking for an easy answer to a complex problem. That kind of thinking will not do any good at all.
    That kid lost his innocence with the first time a friend told him about divorce/fighting of his parents. Or maybe it was the mountains of negativity from capaign ads and news stories.
