It is sad when we live in an age which states that being alone with a kid turns you into a perp.

This guy seems like someone who is just being a good coach, yet, if you work with kids, you are a constant target for allegations because of those who cleverly exploit them.

This story in The Times shows how sad the World really is. \:\(

Ste,

It's not so bad yet in Europe, but I hear that in the States there are all sorts of guidelines that university academics are advised to follow, just to avoid any problem. These include not closing your door when you are speaking to a student, even if the student wants the privacy, not shaking hands with the student unless the student offers his/her hand first, and not sitting between the student and the door.

And these are university students, so at least 18-19 years old.

I am hust glad that I dont have a job that involves kids, and never did.
If I did, then I would seriously be looking for a new job.

It does nothing to prevent all those nasty perps who work in nurseries changing kids diapers.
I wonder what the guidelines are for them

OMG! Whats that smell!!!
Oh! Its just the downwind from the nursery :p
