Lynn at The New Homemaker brings up a good point today about how the media tends to exaggerate how often kids are kidnapped.
She points out that according to the Justice Department there are only around 115 kids kidnapped each by someone who intends to hurt them in some way.
We don’t have any kids yet but are in the process of adopting – and I know it will be something I will worry about once I am a parent, but at least I know now that the reality is that it really isn’t that common.
You just can’t trust the media – they are more interested in their ratings and in being entertaining than in reporting facts.
