    Sorry, is pedophilia really that rampant in the US? I might've not been that independent in the US, but when we moved to Sweden (when I was 7) I was able to move pretty freely. Can't imagine my childhood being that strict, but I guess it's a difference of cultures. This doesn't sound like child neglect, but difference in parenting style.

    I can't remember how old I was when my folks let me start exploring the neighborhood. I guess 7 is 1st maybe 2nd grade? I grew up in the woods, walking miles away from home, so far it took almost all day to get there and back. All the kids in my neighborhood did. I'm not sure if kidnappings are up since I was a kid, but I really doubt they are; same ol' same ol'. Parents of today are pussies, and their children will be super pussies. Is that what I'm trying to say?

    that is exactly what i'm talking about, i felt a lot more free doing whatever i wanted, over here there's a law to restrict just about anything fun. but then it is there because there are people who do stuff to enforce those laws.

    i don't know the pedo numbers here, it's possible pedos are identified more than other cultures, but i also think that people who are mentally ill end up doing something like this (but i don't think they're all completely ill but may have endured some traumatic experience). americans having trauma or neglected childhood i would think is more common than other cultures around the world. people without parents or abusive parents can be due to various things.

    i've seen abusive parents from where i originate from as well but alcohol/divorce/multiple step kids/neglect/crime etc. can make more cases like these.

    from what i've observed, some children here are brought up very well, likely better than most eastern cultures but the variation is quite screwed up. some of the stories i hear are just insane. mostly due to medication-laden people or just involved in crime/drugs/alcohol etc. stuff you have little control over once you're in it. so if you take all that stuff out, i would think the problems here would be about the same but those things add significantly to the issues.

    every time there's a mother or father that drowns/kills their children, it's always because there was something wrong with them. it's never that they were completely normal people. i know there are 20m mentally ill in the U.S. and i think the number is rising, not going lower.

    there's a lot more to this that goes into the drug industry but i'll just end it here.

    i don't think they're pussies, it's just more scary now. less people socialize or step outside their homes, it's more dangerous being by yourself regardless of which country you live in.

    Actually... I think people need to consider the context here. My neighborhood is structured as a large, thin oval and it's about a mile all the way around. I remember being a little kid and going around this place on my bike and scooter all the time. Half a mile really isn't that far. Assuming the woman lives in a relatively safe place and there's people around I don't think it's that big of a deal.

    No, neither is general crime. People have been made paranoid by the media, thinking there's stranger danger on every street corner, a rapist in every closet, and a killer down every alley.

    see i'm always struggling with that. before i used to be more afraid for myself but now not so much, now i'm afraid for my child. while i understand that things aren't as bad as the media portrays, what about the statistics?

    isn't the US #1 in crime? http://www.nationmaster.com/country-...e/Total-crimes

    even if it's not bad compared to the population proportions of other countries, it still makes me feel cautious. a normal crime can turn deadly on a whim. when we moved to one location in dallas, the person told us there was a stick up just around the corner at our local 7up. that sort of stuff scares me.

    oh yeah i know, but that statistic should be important too. we need a better context, what sort of crimes are they recording, what sort of crimes are the highest. that sort of thing. even vandalism can be scary depending on how severe.

    Geez. My parents wouldve been arrest every single day of my childhood if they acted like this back then. I rode my bike to school miles away when I was at that age and went out all the time. We didn't have cellphones and gps to keep tabs on us either.

    Maaaybe id toss 25˘ in the payphone and call home to say I was going somewhere after school. Maybe.... Only rule was I was to call if I wasnt going to be home before 5.

    I used to ride around all the time when I was younger, often with my brothers or friends but sometimes by myself.
    How times have changed. Wonder what age we can let them go out by themselves now?

    Not gonna dispute the bold. However, I believe in due process of the law and pedophiles, like anyone else, deserve that due process. Just thought I'd clarify my stance is all.

    If you can't send your kids out to play half a mile away anymore then there's sonething wrong in our society - maybe we should take care of that instead of hassling the parents...

    Of course it's wise stay cautious but that's just not the world I want to live or raise my kids in.

    Like so many others on here I grew up in a time without cellphones - my parents knew I was outside but never exactly where and it wasn't necessary either.
    One day I got a PC - they always knew where to find me from there on
    (And started $#@!ing about how I should go outside more)

    so i'm not crazy, it isn't as scary in europe as it is in US. i also doubt it's as bad in canada.

    i believe it has to do with isolation from society, children raised without parents or bad parenting (abuse), and drugs/prescription drugs.

    i have always thought that the way we build cities here are just destruction by itself. everything is standardized, you can't walk to your local stores in general, you can't walk anywhere, everything needs some sort of transportation, it just destroys the whole concept of living in a society. too much focus on individualism and seen as freedom while collectivism is dead.

    now i'm all for individualism because i prefer my privacy but we need to find out why people don't want to communicate with one another. we have a good neighbour and we sometimes talk but i don't feel a sense of community that i did growing up. it's nonexistent. and i don't know how to fix it from my end.

    People seem to be less social in general. I have neighbors that I see but not on a regular basis. Sometimes I wish I lived in a small town more out in the country where you can walk everywhere and you know everybody. If something is wrong everyone on the street knows it and wants to help. The neighbors are friendly I just don't see them much.

    Things are just different now. You could at one time get away with letting your kids run free but this world is becoming a scary place to live even in 'nice' places. I don't know if there are more weirdos out there now than ever before or not. I think it's about the same amount you just hear about it more because of the news.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.
