I don't have kids and so know very little, but one thing I have always hated that parents teach their kids is "don't talk to strangers." That has to be the stupidest advice in the world. It's like programming your kid to be some kind of goth weirdo when he grows up.

See she knew the train was safe because they don't play movies on the train. I heard on the light rail that she wouldn't let him fly in an airplane when he was younger because the in flight movie was Ghostbusters.

Here in LA I see a number of kids around that age walking to school without their parents. I don't think it's a big deal.

My father always tells the story that he used to ride the street cars around LA when he was 10 years old. He and his friends would go pretty much where ever they wanted to... well, except for areas where it was known that blacks weren't welcomed.

I don't disagree with her line of thought, I would just be way too nervous with all the sick ****s out there in the world to let that happen. Hell I worry when my 17 year old walks 3 blocks to school.

I was taught not to make serious friends with people who weren't Jehovah's Witnesses. I don't think it's a coincidence I'm so ****ed up.

Hold up... you let you kid at age 3 watch UFC, but have a problem with them watching Ghost Busters?

Then you don't have a problem with your kid riding on a NY city subway at the age of 9?

I'd say you have a parental compass malfunction.

Actually, I think kids have it too easy nowadays anyway.

They should lift the ban on lawn darts.

Well, somewhere between "dont talk to the strange guy in the 78 Camaro with a butterfly collared shirt that opens to his navel with a gold medallion hung around his neck, and dont talk to anyone, anywhere, at any time" is a happy medium. However, parents often come in on the side of caution as they dont want their children harmed. Its a natural instinct and it will be interesting to see where you land on this once you do have kids.

When my brother was 5 he was waiting for me at the end of our driveway so he could walk back with me when I got off the bus, before I got there the MP's pulled up and asked him if he was lost. Now keep in mind, the house we lived in was 40 feet right behind him. He didnt say a word to them, because they are strangers. So they pick him up, and I come home, and I walk in and ask where Nick is. MP's took him and had him sitting in the station, he wouldnt say a word to them until they promised him a cookie, and even then he only said his first name. But how hard is this for an MP? Each house had the name of the family living in it POSTED right there...

Its tough. Where I live the fear is more mountain lions and bears than strange people. My kids are 6 and 3, and if they go out they have to tell me so i can keep an eye on em. I had an exact opposite belief before I had kids, but a nightmare happens every now and then or bigtime worries happen or bad thoughts of what could happen to the innocent little ones and it sometimes draws me to be overprotective. Plus what you see in the news about a 5 year old boy or a 7 year old little girl and think about what would happen if your kids ever got hurt, I can say this anything ever happens to either of my little guys and I would be suicidal.

So maybe as a relatively new parent thats where I am but I won't condemn this lady for doing what she did. She felt her son was ready and things went OK and her son is proud of himself. Cool.

That's why I'm glad I was born and raised in Rural Ohio. Boring, yes. But I got to run around free and independant. I could get dirty, scrape my knee, play cowboys and indians. I could do what I wanted, and I'm a perfectly functioning, highly intelligent person.

Don't coddle your damn kids.

most of the bad things that happen to kids are by someone they know anyways. they are probably safer with strangers.....
