There’s this new kid in town - grade one. Her name is Asia. Our kids have played with her before because she’s a cousin to some kids who live just a few doors down. When Asia’s family has come to town to visit the kids have all played together.
Anyhow, Asia's family now lives here, but we’ve told Freedom (6) and Chelsey (9) that they can’t play over at Asia’s house alone. Either both of them go together, or even Walker (9) and Riley (10) and Wyatt (10) have to be there as well.
"Because we don’t know their parents."
"Are they bad people?"
"We don’t know who they are or what they’re like."
Freedom comes home tonight, late for supper, and Wendy asks,
"Where were you? We phoned Alana’s and you weren’t there. You said you were going to Alana’s.”
"I was at Asia’s, but it worked out ok because no bad people showed up."
