Isn't this the truth!!! And I wouldn't change my childhood and its activities for anything! While I didn't 'win' at dodgeball or break my leg playing Double Dutch, I continued to "try" to better myself and I never felt safer in my life than during those early years.

When I look back, I LOVED MY LIF...

The girl across the street had a dodgeball in her back yard and she was taller than me. I sure had to jump high and hit hard to win! It was a great challenge which looking back at now, I simply loved!

Yep! I'm one of those! I wish my kids could be given the freedoms I had as a child. The world became a crazy place filled with crazy people in a short time frame. I can't even trust that my kids won't be harmed or grabbed out of our front yard if I leave them alone out there to play.

Not even running...

That is so true. Kids are disappearing at alarming rates! I would be a nervous wreck if I had kids who ran free like I did as a child.

LOL! That's why mine don't! We haven't ever even left them with a babysitter. They either go with us or we don't go.

I'm finding it difficult to let my daughter go on these stupid class field trips to different venues out of town without one of us being there.... usually one of us goes along to help ...

My daughter would not allow her kids to go on school trips unless a parent or grandparent was going with them. Consequently my husband got his education late in life!!

LOL!

I'm happy to know that I'm not the only Mom that has that same feeling. I just don't trust that the teachers will keep a close eye out for the kids.

My daughter didn't trust ANYONE. And this was at a time that was 16-20 yrs ago. I neither agreed nor disagreed with her at that time, but now I say she was 100% right!! And I'm so happy that she opened her home to the neighborhood because her kids never wanted to leave the house even in their lat...

The kids turned out okay didn't they? I have been accused of being too paranoid, controlling, and told I am refusing to let the kids grow up. My reply is usually...perhaps I am but then again, I'm making sure that they will grow up.

lol.....I wanna see how tiny this comment box can get! I look at it this way....I would rather face the accusations of being controlling than to have to control and out-of-control drug crazed teenager. You stay on your kids, don't rush 'growing up'!!

I can be safe with friends in my mother's neighborhood but not in my dad's. He won't let me go out unless he is with me. I think it is good. It isn't safe all the time where he lives.

Some of the most shocking abductions happen in the safest neighborhoods. I'm glad you mentioned that you go out with your friends. I don't know if any place is 100% safe anymore. Sad!

I know. I don't like feeling scared just to go out and go to a movie.

As a teenager, I used to crawl out of my bedroom window at 1:00 a.m. and just walk around with my friends. Wouldn't think of doing anything like that today. I am extremely cautious walking around in the daytime! New York taught me well. Who is behind you, who is on either side of you, who is where?

LOL! Kids think they are invincible...it's only as we grow up do we realize that awful things happen to youngsters and that we should take more precautions and be more aware of our surroundings!

When I lived by myself in Chilliwack, BC....I would leave my TV on during the day and when I left for work...

It didn't take much to entertain me as a kid. I could spend hours tossing a clothes pen in the air, tied to a 'handkerchief parachute'. All I needed was a handkerchief, string, and a clothes pen that looked like a human figure.
