We tell our children, “Do not talk to strangers!” And then, we turn around and hand our child over to (in many cases) a total stranger. We justify our actions by assuming that this ‘stranger’ is qualified because he/she has been given the title ‘soccer coach’ by someone in the local soccer association. Someone who is a stranger to us but they have been approved by the local soccer board a board consisting of yet another group of strangers. Strange!!!
It is your duty, as a parent, to take the time to get to know as many of these ‘strangers’ as possible before handing your child over to them.
