Its horrifying! Our son is 3 and I noticed in his 3rd week of preschool, he came home with a block in his bookbag. It was one from our house. My mom said only me and my dad would spin something so innocent. My issue was, and I explained this to his father who drops him off in the mornings before work that: This is cute now, yeah, a block? But what if next time it's not just a block, what if next time he grabs a knife, or a pack of cigarettes, or whatever he might find in our home that could be harmful to him or others and takes that to school?
So after that day the new rule in our house is the book-bag is checked once out the front door to make sure there are no extras tagging along with him to class. I would be mortified if I ever got that phone call.
Terrifying. Next he will be smuggling in a slinky
This is the problem with the gun debate, it isn't the NRA, gun nuts, anti-constitutionals, or so-called "snowflakes". It's the political bias that we've all built around it, and it's no different than any other issue. We've become a society that is anti-social for the most part.
I do however, have a problem with self absorbed parents, who let babysitters and the TV set raise their children into little assholes with no moral compass. The parents should have at least 30 hours a week to spend raising the kids, teaching them to be productive citizens. That in the problem, IMHO.
