Let Your Kids Wander

A reality check from the Globe and Mail:

If a child is abducted or harmed, “usually it is someone in their family or someone they know,” says Christy Dzikowicz, director of missing children services at the Canadian Centre for Child Protection. “The idea of stranger abduction—someone coming and snatching a child off the street—is thankfully extraordinarily, extraordinarily rare.”

I blame crime TV for the general paranoia.
