Many parents do their best to protect, and even overprotect, their children.
Other parents do not provide their children with enough protection.
Some parents take risks in an effort to give their children, and themselves, opportunities not otherwise available.
Yet the world remains a dangerous place.

Some children do not have parents at all, though they may have loving grandparents or caring guardians. Other children do not receive proper care. Many loving parents are too impoverished to provide the nurturing their children need.
Popular culture, the entertainment industry and unpopular neighbourhoods are filled with oily predators. Anyone superficially appearing to be charming often turns out to be a manipulative narcissist.
Unless you have experienced abuse, or witnessed abuse, or have knowingly been an abuser, how do you know what it is like to be in that dark and dangerous world?
Even if your life has been one of loving, caring, safe surroundings, has there ever been anyone who has acted as a guiding light towards an even better world for you?
