Outside: Safe For Kids?

As a followup to TIME's article, "The Internet: Safe for Kids?", I offer you: "Outside: Safe for Kids?" in which we point out that, by leaving the home, children are set up for peer-sex-solicitation, bullying, racism and other bigotry, and even physical dangers such as car accidents and rape. Oh, certainly, schools are largely a safe place, but they cannot prevent 100% of the dangers resulting from a child allowed to leave their bedroom, even if you physically carry your child from their room to the car, and from the car to the school's front doors. Leaving the house is the common thread between all non-home-related dangers - won't someone please think of the children?!!?? Happily, TIME re! aches the same conclusion as I do: teaching kids how to survive and avoid negative experiences is far more important than shielding them or trying to control their experiences.
