  • pretty well
    My best friends daughter was raped, saudimised, and beated almost to death by a 5 and 7 year old boy in a matter of minutes, becaue she wenet in the house just for them to "show her a new toy" Her mom was outside with them, and went in after her when she didnt come right back out....
    I am a bit paranoid after that.
    My son only goes to houses of people that I know well.
