    teaching kids not to play in traffic is "pre-traumatizing" them too.

      your kids that every time they see a police officer you should put your hands over your head, then there's something wrong with you, not me.

      I pity this woman's children who will go through life as neurotic troubled souls.

        about "Make it a game when they are young."

        It's perfectly possible to teach children how to survive without traumatizing them.

        are not neurotic, troubled souls.  The youngest will be 30 this year.  He's an officer in the Army, one of the ones who insists his men know what they are doing and are prepared - because he grew up knowing these things. Another grew up to be an Army medic. Another is a Marine.

        The rest of my children are also responsible, compassionate, well-adjusted, and well-prepared people, teachers, scientists, small business owners.

        Save your pity, my children are happy, health adults.

        All knowledge is worth having.

        not knowing their rights and responsibilities. How many kids have civics class anymore?

        We need civics lessons in grades 1-12 (age appropriate of course) and then we might see some more respect for Constitutional principles and basic human rights from our over-militarized law enforcement organizations.

        But yeah, it's a whole sea-change/culture change. I'm not sure individual parents are up to the task.
