We were in the grocery store yesterday, at the service desk just inside the front door, and my son (7) was with me as I waited for my money order. Out of nowhere an older guy comes up and is staring at my child (from the back since DS was leaning with his chin on the counter), and comes over to me and says something like, "He's a beautiful child." Then the guy wandered away. DS is - blond hair, blue eyes - but it just seemed...odd. Now maybe he was just being a nice old man but maybe he was a perv. I don't really know. The comment wasn't odd, but the way he stared at him was. I said thank you, finished our transation and left.
I told DS in the car that if an older man ever came up to him and started running his hands through his hair (I've heard stories) or anything and it seemed weird to ask them to stop or walk away. DS knows there are "bad weirdos".
Is this enough info for DS? Would you have been wary of the guy?
