Me too. It's so unfair to kids these days. Walking in the wilderness nowadays exposes them to real dangers from four legged creatures and now two legged creatures are lurking about.
Parents might need to revamp the line of thinking which goes "kids are safe most of the time while separate from their parents" to "families should do things together as a family all the time."

Indeed. Keep your children close. Seriously. I know camping trips and Scouting are good for boys, but (worrier that I am) I never permitted mine to go on similar trips.
