Ask Amy: Young girl is at risk during visitation with dad

DEAR AMY: I have a 6-year-old granddaughter whose parents are not together. In a couple of months, when she goes to visit her dad (my son), she may be in proximity to a man who was incarcerated for molestation. This man is the brother of my son’s girlfriend, and the two siblings live together in their parents’ home. I am very anxious about this.

I plan to tell my son that it would be best for his daughter’s safety and security if he would change the visitation location. I have spoken to my granddaughter (when she visits me) about speaking up strongly and loudly if anyone makes physical overtures toward her. However, I am concerned about whether I spoke appropriately and specifically enough. I usually spoke to her when giving her a bath and used the correct terminology for the body parts.

Where can I get some information and training on how to raise awareness and educate my granddaughter on protecting herself? — Anxious Grandma – Response

I think “Amy” should not be giving out advice on something she is obviously not qualified to advise on. This just one more clear cut example of the mass hysteria crafted by politicians to take advantage of dead kids and exploit grieving parents for their personal gain. This “sex offender” myth has; in fact, been turned into a multi billion dollar business. I say their actions are un American and the states that support these laws are not really America anymore. Most jurists and legislators are to cowardly to stand up for anything that doesn’t translate into a paycheck and don’t fulfill their oaths of office anymore. And America calls this normal! Society is infected to the lowest levels. Even the street cops do all in their power to cheat people out of their birth right guaranteed by the constitution and bill of rights.

Well put. Now, where’s our cut!? There’s gotta be a way to capitalize on all this B$.
