Why its hard not to be a paranoid freak of a parent

Because of stories like this:

Gun pulled on mom
Via Blogher
Wow. Psycho policewoman gets drunk on power and then takes it out on another mother. If I said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times: guns and cars. Bad idea. Guns and frustrating , pushy line-ups to get your kids home as quick as possible? Even worse.

Kidnapped boy found in oil tank
Okay. Let us say it together: Every parent’s nightmare. Fortunately, this story didn’t end up with a mutilated body, though it seems like it could have totally gone that way if it wasn’t for the eagle eyes of a concerned citizen. So thank you, whoever you are, for being astute enough to know that children shouldn’t be tied up and carried in trunks.

Okay. You know I want to say it. But I won’t. Under no circumstances should they be tied up and carried in trunks. Never. Not even if they just threw all the clean laundry out of the dryer into the pile of dirty laundry and then left the fridge open for hours and left the milk out in seering heat and…They still shouldn’t be riding in trunks.
