    But children are vulnerable..they will obey an adult..look at the Hitler youth..ordered to carry out semi-nude gymnastics in the woods..

    There is no such thing as overly protected children... Totally disagree....

    Only attentative parents...

    Don't tell me you've never had a nasty experience?? yes, I think so and I wish they were escapable, but they are NOT.
    And parents cannot be 100% attentive, the team effort helps.

    I do not think that semi-nude gymnastics are "over the top".
    Children are vulnerable - true - but being bought up by two loving parents eases this...and the team effort helps.

    Overly protected?

    Ask the boys that Jerry Sandusky molested if there is such a thing as 'overly protected'.

    And the thousands of boys raped by priests.

    And so on....

    Agreed.

    The really sad thing is how many parents ignored their kids when they said some family friend or trusted member of the community 'touched me in a bad place'. And the parents just assumed the person in question was 'not like that'?

    Kids don't (usually) go to college...adults/old teenagers do - their lives are there own by then.

    Btw - a 'kid' to me is 13 and under (possibly under 16 depending on the subject).
