A viral video scares parents into not letting their kids talk to strangers Over 700 Children are Abducted a Day. The Free-Range Mom points out that there haven't been that many abductions in the last 5 years, total.
I was in the local park yesterday, and a bunch boys and girls of age 5-6 or so kept asking me to lift them up to pick fruit out of a tree. I tried to convince them that the fruit might be poisonous, but they assured me that they ate it last week and no one died. One girl insisted on sitting on my shoulders. These kids were not worried about being abducted. I was the one worried about an accusation of improper behavior.
