Hi, I hope it is okay to ask this here... I have not read this book yet but have heard a lot of recommendations for it. I am hesitant to read it. I feel that I am pretty aware of the dangers that my children face and of how to protect them. I am maybe a bit on the overprotective side though I don't think too extreme. Will this book scare me and make me worse? I worry so much already about all the bad stuff out there. I have such an overactive imagination that goes in its own direction - I don't want to have anything more to feed it with...
My dd has been carpooling to an activity with a dear friend of mine, someone I've known and trusted for years, whose ds's are in the same activity.
Something was off with my friend recently, and I couldn't understand it or quite put my finger on it. I could have ignored or rationalized the signals I was getting, but thinking of my responsibilities as a parent in light of this book discussion, I didn't. I changed the carpool arrangement, despite some awkwardness, and got my dd out of traveling with my friend two weeks ago.
My friend had a car accident this week (first in her life, no one hurt, thank God). She told me she's been on some new meds for an ongoing physical health issue that she now realizes were interfering with her thinking and her ability to drive. She's getting help for that.
Potential catastrophe averted. My kid stayed safe. I protected her from danger :
