I was so proud of my 12 year old son when his TBM aunt asked him if he wanted to go to church with them.... He had the same reaction... Said "no" and ran to his parents. Smart kids and good parenting will beat the TSCC any day!
I'm 71 now, and I was only 8 or 9 when some yahoo that I didn't know asked me if I wanted a bike. I was on foot, walking from a friend's house to my own home. I said no, I already had one. We lived in a fairly rural area in East San Diego County. The guy kept creepy-crawling at a slow pace in his car, trying to talk me into getting into the car.
I finally cut between a couple of houses, down into a canyon, and ran back to my own house. I told my Dad about the creepy guy. He asked me to describe the guy and the car, and told me to play indoors for a while.
