Everybody should be aware of dangers, but that is not the same as fear.
Maybe there was an incident in the mother's life that caused her to be so cautious?
But, if not, I do think it is a bit extreme myself. I almost think small towns can be safer because everyone knows everyone else. In my small town growing up you couldn't do anything without someone seeing your dad up at the gas station and telling on you!
Kinda off topic, but why do they drive the 2 blocks instead of walk to get him? It seems like a waste of gas.
|Ironically, the bigger the risk, the less likely you are to hear about it on the news. People who die in traffic accidents or fall off ladders don't make the news because it happens all the time|
-be aware of your surroundings (and don't wear headphones)
-never be embarassed to ask for help or make a disturbance if you feel threatened.
-if you need help, pick someone specific and ask that person, people are more likely to respond if you single them out.
-if you have to yell for help yell "call 911" if gives people permission to get involved
-each time you turn a corner when walking, look behind you to see if anyone is following.
-be aware of blind spots where someone could hide.
-trust your instincts
