Hi Readers! I was on Dr. Drew last night, as you can see, below. I like this clip and I very much liked the other lady he had on, Lisa
The point I made midway through this half-hour chat was simply this: When MY mom let me play outside, she was not first shown videos of four children abducted over the course of 20 years, all of them several states away from us. Thus she made her decision based on her own observations of her own community.
This is something we don’t allow parents to do anymore — or at least Dr. Drew seems against it. Instead, we are told to take into account all the worst case scenarios that have ever befallen any (white, American) children anywhere, as if they are as relevant as what we see out our own windows.
Which is why what we often see out our own windows is an empty street, with no children playing. – L.
