My dd is 13 and is always trying to get me to let her walk places alone. I always tell her "NO" of course she always asks "why?, All my firends do it, You treat me like a baby." Usually I just tell her its not safe and leave it @ that. But the other day I finally had enough of her questioning me and I told (more like yelled at) her that she may not walk because there are crazy ppl out there who will kidnapp her, rape her and murder her.
My dh says I shouldn't have told her that. But it is the truth. What do you think?

Yes, you should have told her what you are afraid of. My girls are 2 and 4 and are aware that not every person you meet is nice and some would hurt her if given the chance. Is she asking to walk to a friends house or to the corner gas station for what ever. Keep in mind that in about three years she could be driving and in 5 years she will be leaving home.
