Keeping our children safe
Placeholder Image
One of the most memorable scenes from “The Oprah Winfrey Show” was an episode where Oprah sent a seemingly “nice” man who needed help finding his puppy to lure kids away from a playground where their parents were watching them. Although “The Oprah Show” informed the mothers of the study beforehand, and what they were studying, one of the mothers got a wake-up call when she watched a small group of children follow the man away from the park just seconds after meeting the man. That woman said she had always depicted anyone who could cause her child harm as a bad and very distinguishable man, not a man who looked “nice” in her child’s words.
