Here’s another viral video people are sharing — a short and actually kind of impressive lesson by a girl showing how to escape from a zip tie, “In case you ever get kidnapped.”
Except…kids don’t need to KNOW how to escape from a zip tie. They are not going to be zip tied. Making them think about it is kind of like inserting a horror movie in their hearts: “Hey honey, don’t worry if the bad man snatches you, because you’ll know how to get out of zip ties if that’s what he uses to tie you up and not, say, actual handcuffs, or a rope, or a chain, or if he drugs you first or…never you mind. It’s all good! Just learn how to get out of a zip tie!”
What we really need is a viral video teaching kids how to look both ways before crossing the street. – L
P.S. Do all children have to wear lace-up shoes now, JUST IN CASE??
