CPSIA - Nightline Explores the Fine Line Between A Safe Childhood and OCD
You gotta check out this short Nightline video. If you wondered where the mania underlying the CPSIA came from, I think Nightline nailed it. Watching this video, I have to ask how my kids made it this far without all these devices to protect them. And me - what are the odds I would have made it to my majority in the days when front doors were never locked and you simply wandered somewhere down the block to play and came back later when you were done or were hungry. I particularly liked the Nightline correspondent's questioning the line between appropriate safety measures and obsessive-compulsive behavior. If I still had a sense of humor, I might have found this all pretty funny. I hope to find it funny again someday . . . .
