Child abduction stories get some perspective

10

December

Cnn Hey look CNN took a break from its "what can kill your kid next" series of updates and did a story on a far more likely danger: relatives kidnapping kids. They even put it in perspective that it happens 200,000 times a year vs. 115 stranger abductions a year.

It's nice to see some responsible reporting by one of the worst offenders of scaring the beejezus out of parents. I'm thinking I might forward this to one of my son's friends. He's a middle schooler whose parents still won't let him play in the front yard because of their fear of strangers.
