    ...and furthermore, we have no knives, forks, baseball bats, candlesticks, caustic cleaning supplies, plastic bags, insecticides, pharmaceuticals, old refrigerators, swimming pool or a TV either. :whistling:

    I have no problem with Holly's essay. I agree with her concerns and I encourage parents to ask that question. My response would be "Yes, there are potentially dangerous articles in my home which I responsibly store, such as knives, prescription drugs, firearms, and chemicals. While your child is visiting my home I will protect him as I would my own child, just as I am sure you would do." This should then be an opportunity to discuss child safety in general.

    quote taken from article.

    one of the worst things to do is not talk to your kids about the potential dangers of guns and gun safety.

    Some of the comments below that article are sickening.
