Here's a fine example of the sort of nonsense that parents who don't think like economists will spew. This contains at least one empirical fallacy and one example of bad reasoning. Feel free to spot more. It was a comment left on a blog post of Free Range Kids author Leonore Skenazy's at ParentDish.com.
“WHEN ARE PARENTS GOING TO LEARN THAT LEAVING YOUR CHILD WITH ANYONE OTHER THAN YOUR HUSBAND OR TRUSTED FAMILY MEMBER OR FRIEND, FOR EVEN ONE MINUTE IS PUTTING YOUR CHILD AT RISK. WAKE UP PARENTS!!! YOU CAN NEVER BE TOO PARANOID WHEN IT COMES TO THE SAFETY OF YOUR CHILDREN.”
My choices below the fold. And you can hear my podcast on Skenazy's work here.
