Public safety is often about changing relationships: the relationships people have with each other and with things they do for fun.
I realized this as I contemplated how to tell my 6-year-old son that he should not, if invited, enter our neighbor’s home alone. The neighbor is nice. If I say that people are not always so nice once you are alone with them, he will not look at the neighbor the same way again. He may even be upset with me for that perception.
