I think telling Mom and Dad is fine. Leave the teachers and the neighbors out of it. There are kids out there that are that stupid, so a silly, simplistic comic strip probably is the only thing they could understand.

This is straight out of the NRA's safety program: Stop! Don't Touch! Tell an adult! The only thing missing is Eddie Eagle. Sounds like they had a pro-gun agent write this up. What's the problem with that?

Nothing at all, I was jsut suprised that an arm of our government seemed so level headed about the issue.

I'm with you, Hielo, I'm looking for the hook. Seems to good to be true.

On the one hand, it's a good campaign. On the other, most kids over the age of four are going to look at a cartoon like that and think about how dorky it is. I can remember being young and feeling almost insulted by the level of intelligence that most of the gimmicks aimed at me had. Good idea, but they need a different tactic, as do most publishings aimed at children.
