Our children need not be helpless
THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR
Recently a heart-rending article appeared in our local newspaper. The writer was a columnist and parent, lamenting about the safety of children. Every stranger becomes suspect around them, and parents are torn between being "worried on the one hand about perverts, concerned on the other about smothering children in an overly protective web." Reprinted in The Orange County Register, September 12, 1984 . The columnist saw no answer to the problem, and this made him angry.
As every parent knows, these concerns and fears appear very threatening at times. The newspaper column brought back memories of my own concern when our children were small. But we are not, as the writer suggests, helpless before these anguished thoughts. There are answers that can comfort the parent and all those who love and cherish children, answers that show us our children need not be helpless before evil.
