Prompted by a post by sunyata_ about selling girl scout cookies

I used to sell things door to door as a kid. I went by myself. I knocked on strangers' doors. I think the percentage of predators out there is about the same as there were when I was a kid. Child kidnappings and murders are just reported more often. However when she reaches the same age I was, I won't let my daughter do the same thing. Because she would be one of the few. I don't want her to stand out in the crowd in that way. Kids today don't walk alone. Predators look for the lambs. I don't want my daughter to stand out as a lamb. So I go with the herd. Sad, but true.
