A Nick Freitas video is going viral this week. It's advice to the dads of America on protecting their children.
Freitas mentioned an interview where a convicted child predator shared what he looked for in a child. The predator said it was less what he looked for in a child than what he looked for in the parents. If the child had a father who would rightfully beat the sh*t out of him, he would pass on that child and find one who did not.
These are your keys to victory in protecting your children:
Be a threat.
Be present enough in your kid's life that predators KNOW you're a threat.
Though Nick did have something else on his mind:
There's a lot of people right now that seem Hell bent to have sexual conversations with our children without our knowledge. Those are the same people telling us that the very things that make you a threat are manifestations of toxic masculinity. So maybe we shouldn't listen to those people.
\u201c.@AsmLoriDWilson says that if your 7 year old says \u201cthey are not the same gender as they are biologically,\u201d their belief must be affirmed, because to do otherwise would be to reject your child. She says parents \u201cshould be affirming our children in every possible way.\u201d #AB957\u201d
It's good advice and advice I would hope most dads don't NEED to hear because they know already. Every adult your kid comes across should know you will inflict an above-average amount of harm to them if they EVERY hurt one of your kids. It is the one thing that best keeps predators away.
