While you as a parent have every right to keep your child home and play the role as the ever present and controlling helicopter parent always hovering
around, please keep in mind, the more you enforce your control over your child, the greater the break in rebellion that usually occurs in later
Your personal beliefs, biases, paranoia can actually do more harm to your child than you think, when you're fully convinced that you are protecting
Let your child go. If you're really that fearful, purchase a personal dosimeter, or geiger counter if you have the funds for a geiger counter, but
a dosimeter for under $100US from any online shop will do your child fine.
Read the instructions on the dosimeter, and ensure your child understands what they mean, then send them on their way with emergency funds to return
immediately should the dosimeter show positive at at time.
You get more radiation from natural sunlight every day than you'd likely get from visiting some ambiguous anywhere place in Japan.
Then again, for whatever reason, people have a tendency to really really really love panicking and making a bigger deal out of anything and everything
imaginable, especially when doing so coincides with their own disposition and preconceptions about other things.
People love their lies, and love to be scared by the lies they choose to believe. Why else are doomsday cults and websites so popular?
