L.A. Moms Blog post, "Is every parent this terrified?"
This topic has been on my mind a lot this summer, as I've read news story upon news story about young girls/women -- all from California -- being accosted or worse. I usually avoid subjects like this, but this time it struck a nerve.
I find that fear is something I've had to come to terms with as a parent. I think it must be something you just learn to live with the moment you realize you're responsible for another human being.
