What about when your kids aren't around you or a CCW spouse?
I'm new here, and I really like the site. My work keeps me pretty busy, but I try to give some time every week or so to catch up on a couple of boards.
My questions concerns your children. Plenty here share the mindset that they carry precisely for the reason that you never know when you'll need it. How do they deal with the fact that they or their spouse can't always be there with their children? For example, while they're in school, going to the mall with friends, sleeping over at a friends house, playing outside, and so on and so on....
I'm about to become a father, and while the days of my child being away from us aren't here yet, I'm still trying to plan how I'll deal with it when it arrives.
Thanks for the advice/comments/help...
This Is A Really Great Thread.
I don't have any kids but, I can sure appreciate the thought and concern that you folks are putting into your posted comments.
I wish all parents shared your total dedication to their children.
I am always watching out for the little kids in my neighborhood.
It's my opinion that some of them are way too young to be walking to and from school alone.
Especially before they get up to the area where there is a School Crossing Guard at every corner.
Home Schooling is a GREAT thing if it's possible for parents to do it.
I know you really would catch a bullet for your kids.
I just "know" some things about people.
