My brother was driving home from work and saw his daughter (13yr old) and her friend walking home from the gas station and asked if they needed a ride. Some other guy pulled over and asked him " Hey! What are you trying to do with those girls?"
He said " that's my daughter" and his daughter said " It's ok. That's my dad!" My brother was mad at first but then he realized this guy was trying to do a good thing and thanked the guy.
So my mom felt like offering this kid she barely knew a ride was not a good. She went over and introduced herself to the kids parents and apologized for making him feel uncomfortable or scared.
I feel like she was just trying to be nice and help and she should not worry so much but then the question arises.
Would you have offered the kid a ride or does this fall under the stranger danger thing where you could look like you are trying to kidnap someone?
