Sleepy-bye death traps: an explanation.

As you will no doubt recall, I’m convinced that Lynn believes the whole issue of child safety is a moral panic. In her mind, it seems that people make an enormous deal over a total non-issue and also try to keep children from having the same fun she did as a kid. She, to drive a point into the ground, thinks that the parents of today make the same amount of noise when Little Timmy skins his knee as they would if he were to get really hurt, like if he broke his leg or something. The problem, of course, is her self-willed isolation from the world; she chooses to not be aware of the risk factors out there. One of those risks, as we all know, is inherently-unsafe children’s furniture. We know that a crib with bars that could trap a child’s skull are as bad a thing as a making a toddler sleep in the top bunk of a bunk bed. Lynn, who chooses to not know, does not. She always seems to have the Patterson children sleeping in beds designed to murder them.
