Those are bad kids.
Don’t follow them.
Bad guys will take you.
You’ll never see me again!
Why are you scaring your child?
What happens if you become ill
or get hurt?
What will they do then?
Leave you to bleed?
Teach them instead to always ask you
before they can go with someone else.
Always know who they are with.
If someone offers them candy
they ask you first.
Same with looking for lost dogs
or even petting a dog.
Permission beforehand makes a better style.
Helicopter parents will never go away.
At least try to allow the child to grow up
guilt free, please!
