Lindsey Baum was last seen walking home from a friend's house about six blocks from her own home in the small town of McCleary.
I know there are many of you that say you refuse to llive in fear and you let your kids do the things you did as a kid. I don't. My kids do not walk the nieghborhood, they don't spend the night at friends houses I haven't known for years. Could something happen right under my nose. Yes. Do I lessen the chances of something happeningby taking these measures...I like to think so.
Does anyone else place more restrictions on thier kids wandering then tthay had because the way the world is now?
I feel SO bad for this mom, but there is part of me that wants to shake her and say"She was ONLY 10 yrs old, why was she walking 6 blocks ALONE!!!!"

To anon 10:04, your mom being that strict had nothing to do with you being safe. My parents took all those precautions too, and I still found a way to walk around downtown Houston at age 15, drunk off Strawberry Hill and swooning over skater boys. I still went to church every Sunday morning, but sometimes I was still trippin from the night before. All these rules and restrictions and cloistering away the we as a society do to our kids are for naught: if God wants you, he will take you, and if it isn't your time, it just isn't.
So you're saying what? That we shouldn't do anything to try to protect our kids, or ourselves for that matter, because we're going to die anyway?

Adam Walsh was abducted and murdered on July 27, 1981.
On the afternoon of December 4, 1972, Steven Stayner was approached by "Reverend" Kenneth Parnell. He was missing until March 1, 1980.
It's not a new thing. It's been going on for decades.
