I agree that the dangers out there are much more significant than twenty or even five years ago. However, children today are likely far more aware of these dangers than we are as adults. This does not mean that we don't have to teach children to be safe. We most certainly do. However, when we teach children to think and take care of themselves they develop a very good understanding of the world in which they live.
