Who’s That Man, Still?

In my very first Who’s Your Daddy blog post, Who’s That Man?, I discussed how several years ago I sometimes felt like a suspect being watched by all the moms and nannies at the playground.  A man at a playground on a weekday morning must be up to no good, right?  Yesterday, Lenore Skenazy wrote in the Wall Street Journal, Eek! A Male!, about how our society may have gone off the deep end about “suspicious men” lurking behind every corner.  I think every dad, uncle or grandpa has thought or worried about the issue while at the park with their loved ones.  I am all for protecting our kids from predators but also hope we can keep perspective so we don’t keep them from good experiences (like a pickup football game in the park), or worse yet, put them in more danger (not helping a child in need for fear of misunderstood intentions).
