Is it my imagination or is it really less safe for our kids these days? Part of me hopes it’s the 24/7 news and the Internet that incessantly informs us of the horrors around us that make things seem worse. Were those dangers always there, and we were simply blissfully unaware? What do you think?
As kids we roamed in packs on Halloween, ranging far and wide in search of sugary goodness. Did my parents worry the way I do now? Honestly I don’t think so. Is it more dangerous now or are we overprotective? Me, I’m starting construction on a tower (think Rapunzel) for my 3 year old this weekend.
Have a very safe & Happy Halloween!
