It's what people used to do.


Now it's only what paedos do.

OP- 2 yr olds attract attention because they're lovely. Nice people talk to 2 yr olds because they're nice people.

Do try and remember that about 99.9% of abuse goes on within a family- it's unlikely to be some nice old man in the street who chats to Junior.

I don't think you're obliged to tell him not to speak to anyone, it's nice, it's what people do.

When do we teach our children about strangers and not to talk to everyone they meet. I have a 2 and a half year old who attracts lots of attention and he talks to anyone and everyone. This is starting to concern me.
