So these are the Abernathy kids

They to me are an example of what kids can do if u let them

Were the parents locked up for neglect? Were the kids taken and put in foster care?


They were celebrated, allowed to ride behind Roosevelt and challenged to greater achievements!

And these were most assuredly more dangerous times than we are used to.

What does this say about the world we now inhabit? How far have we fallen/come in the last 100 years?

Ask yourself what would happen if this happened today.

I read a bit of their story
Impressive kids to be sure.

and if they were around today would probably have their own reality TV show.
I'm sure the parents and the boys loved the notoriety

But that's where the dangers lies.
Remember back in 2009, when those parents claimed their 6 year old son was carried off in a weather balloon?
Latest balloon boy story

It had all been a hoax to get the family a spot on a reality TV show, the boy was never in the balloon in the first place.
people will do silly dangerous stuff for fame and fortune.

This is not 1910 and there's not a snowballs chance in hell I'd let my kids do it. and I'm that kind of dad who takes my daughter rock climbing and whitewater rafting.

Why not?Abviously kids can do it

Its your fear not their inability

That stops them from starting to do amazing things at quite a young age

Oh to be in those times. I would totally let my daughter do something like this. But like you said times have definitely fallen drastically in the past 100 years.

She wouldn't get to the end of the street before getting stopped by the police or a random person trying to kidnap her.
These kids had a US Marshall for a father so that probably helped a little.
