Am a mom of a 9 year old boy and 6 year old girl and recently I have had to speak with my daughter with respect to boys.
Not trying to frighten her or anything like that but cause of the pedophilia strucken men in our society whom by the way you can't recognize by just looking.
I told her not to accept hugs from anyone or even agree to sit on anyone's lap during a Q&A session irrespective of whether the person is family or not.
The thing is am I going too far? Where do I draw the line? How can I set boundaries?
Yesterday we were in the elevator at the cinema and a man that I had never seen before recognized me and the kids from their school and put a hand on her cheek to say hello. I impulsively smacked his hand off..asking him why he would do a thing like that when I don't even know him..I didn't feel bad for doing in but I'd like to know your thoughts. Pls respond.....
