It seems like crazy is in the air. I am sick over this as I'm sure you all are. I don't want my son out of my sight for a while. Anyone feeling the same way? What can we do? I'd like to know what other parents are thinking. Am I over reacting?

I think that you are

Live life. Celebrate life. Take your boy somewhere special and remind each other that living in fear is no way to live

Deep breath. And smile.

I don't have children, but if I did, I think I would keep them home. Sometimes peace of mind is most important.

Its the week before holiday, so many schools aren't doing much work anyway. That's how I see it. The odds are against anything actually happening, but I don't think it hurts to have some family time while people everywhere seem to be getting more and more crazy.

Do you want to go hide yourself in a hole? Should you board up your windows and never leave?

No.

Living in fear is not living. Don't do that.

That's a good thing to tell your children, what's the point of living , if you live in fear , enjoy every thing life has to offer , even the bad moments , because you only get one.

I like the idea of keeping them home until after the holidays. When I was a kid I loved Christmas vacation, and this is both a good idea from a safety standpoint as well as from the childeren's sense of freedom and not-have-to-work-every-dayness.

Yup! I would too. All the craziness is coming to ., I think, because of all the "end of the world" hype. I'd wait until after "doomsday" is past us. Take a holiday. Peace of mind is important. Make it your 2012 personal family ritual, stay home!

Well said. My thoughts exactly.

I just read a post from someone a second ago that in a few years most kids will be home schooled, all shopping done online, movies watched from home, etc. Then a couple decade away from that the world will be like the movie Surrogates since there is so much violence. This may end up being the sad truth.
