Step Up -- latchkey kid testRating: 1 likes, 0 dislikes
I caught the show by chance and saw most of it, including the kids home alone segment. I commend you for trying to get the word out there and let parents know. What I did notice though was that the little girl who did the right thing was probably truly scared, because she was truly home alone -- the other two tries had kids home with a sibling. My guess is that either made them feel more secure or less cautious/less likely to believe they could be in harm's way. Perhaps the parents will get better results if they drill it in to the kids that they are responsible for each other. Just a thought, and you might get want to test that.
The show on graffiti didn't surprise me much, but the one on spiking young women's drinks was amazing and s-c-a-r-y. I guess it could happen to men, too. Appreciated the tips at the end.
Thank you for very good work on all three pieces!
