My four-year-old daughter is a Dora the Explorer fanatic. We were watching a show where Dora was acting like a cowgirl, taking some cowboy cookies to Benny the Bull. Anyway, Dora and Boots had to cross the Rattlesnake Rocks. Whenever they heard a rattle, they had to notice that a snake was near and tell it to stop. When they said stop, the snake stopped, and they walked on by.
I'm not in the heart of rattlesnake country or anything, but there are a few around in the open fields and the ditches along the roads. And further south, they're everywhere. So I started wondering if it's really all that good to teach kids that if they see a snake, they just have to say stop, and the snake will freeze and let them pass in peace.
