I still would advise my kids to run the other direction.
Maybe this guy should have found some adults to consult with.

I would like to point out that hysterical soccer moms are histories greatest monster.

What are you talking about? He was male and white, of course he was a child molester. Seriously it's like you don't watch Nacy Grace at all.

"His dog had actually run off from home and he was driving in the neighborhood looking for it. He stopped by the juveniles and asked if they had seen his dog and then left."

Congratulations on raising some panicky snowflakes there.

After watching Gardens of the Night, I would also err on the side of caution.

There's a BIG difference between "Hey have you seen my dog? No? Well thanks anyway" and "Hey would you mind jumping into my windowless van and helping me look for my dog?".

People need to calm the hell down. If you are seeing a perv behind every bush it is you that has the real problem.

Yep.  Kiddidlers are rare.  Not rare enough I suppose, but rare.

This - pretty much word for word.

Well, it was Mentor, and to be fair that means the guy was probably rockin' a Tapout sleeveless and the missing dog in questions was certainly a pit bull. I don't blame the kids.

And this speaks to another issue.  If he was driving around the neighborhood and you have no farking clue who he is then  you need to get outside of your self-induced prison a little more.

Also, another one that cracks me up:

My friend wont let anyone take his kids to do anything with the exception of his mother.  But he has no problems sending these same kids off to multi-day/night long camps with complete strangers in remote locations.  And I know for certain he is far from the only one exhibiting this odd behavior.

If you raised your kids to not being able to tell the difference between a guy rolling down his window and asking if you see a black labrador by the name of pork chop vs a guy who drives by, opens his door and gesturing your kid to go inside his car to find his lost chihuahua then you have failed as a parent!@@

I disagree. Best to teach your kids to assume the worst of all strange adults.

Some adults are able to out think kids and manipulate them.

From the story, he basically asked some kids if they had seen his dog and then left.  Hardly alarm inducing.

Yes, cultivating paranoia and seeing monsters lurking everywhere is a sane policy.

One would suspect that most adults would be able to out think kids and manipulate them.  The assertion though that all adults need to be perceived of as threats and treated as such is absurd fear mongering.

I have candy. I know your dad. Help me find my missing puppy. I'm not a child molester.

I guess that's one way to go.

I teach my kid to be courteous and polite, but also not to tell strangers personal details about himself or our family and not to ever go anywhere with a stranger.

And if a stranger tries to take him that he is to scream, attack the eyes and testicles, and run at the first opportunity.

STRANGER DANGER!

Gergesa I don't mean to suggest be paranoid and run screaming... just to assume if a stranger approaches children to be prepared for worst and not trust them. Be polite but watch out for yourself.


If you think someone is dangerous and he isnt ... nothing lost.

A kid thinks an adult is safe and he isn't... end game.

Children can't necessarily see through an adults deception so responsible to teach them to act safe with any no matter how legit they seem.

Given that 90% of child molestations are done by an adult a child already knows, I think your fear is misplaced.  Instead, just drill home the basics: never follow a stranger, never give out personal details and when in doubt, find another adult.

But thanks to the paranoia and fear-mongering by parents, I personally avoid all interaction with children I don't know, even if the child appears to be in distress.  No good deed goes unpunished.  If it is blinding clear that the kid needs help, I might call the cops.

If an unfamiliar child approaches me and wants to BS over something I'm doing, I tell them to go grab a parent so I can introduce myself.  If they don't, then I leave.  All I need is for some paranoid parent to either call the cops on me or come over and scream at me because they look over and see me talking to their kid unsupervised.  It is just not worth it.

If your kid grows up thinking everyone is inherently evil and dangerous, still nothing lost?

I get where you're coming from but I know adults who are literally afraid of everything and it seems so stressful.

I was 18 when someone tried the "lost my dog" bit on me.  I was working at an animal hospital and was cleaning the yard behind the building after closing and a guy pulled up and said he had lost his dog, would I help him look for it?

I told him that I could not.  I had to work but I could inform the staff of what the dog looked like so we could keep an eye out.  As I said this, I stepped out from behind the bush I was standing next to so I could be in full view of the building.

He insisted that I didn't need to do that and the dog couldn't be far.  I was probably really good with animals and if I would just come help him, we'd find him in no time.

I told him that I was sorry I couldn't help him and immediately turned and walked quickly back into the building.

I probably should have called the police but we just made sure everyone went out in pairs for a while.

\I really did learn everything I needed to survive in kindergarten!

There's video of topless Kate Upton riding a horse at the bottom of the page. Just letting folks know.

Most definitely NSFW in some cases, unless you're self employed.

congrats on raising a paranoid psychopath then.

I was basically taught to assume any adult I didn't know was out to rape me. I don't think it exactly helped my mental health.
