Kapture to America

A new survey from the C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, The National Poll on Children’s Health, has found that US parents rate Internet Safety as being a more serious health threat to children than school violence, sexually transmitted diseases, abuse and neglect.

Get a GRIP.

That the internet is on this list at all is a little foolish. That it ranks higher than school violence is oddly savant. But, um, more than abuse?

One might as well include "riding their bike to the next block" on the list.

Scares me more.

Parents don't list abuse and neglect as a concern, because they don't see what they do as abusive and neglectful even if it is.
Also attentive non-abuser wouldn't worry about it.
