I will be writing about how you should take care of child so they wont be in a bad situation. In the book Kindred it talks about a woman named Dana who lived in modern times, and goes back in time when slavery was still legal. Dana goes back in time to help a white boy named Rufus to stay out of trouble.
An example of how you should take care of a child so they don’t get into trouble is when Rufus gets the house on fire on page 20 in the book kindred. This shows that Rufus wasn’t told not to play with fire from his parents. So what should’ve happened is that Rufus should be outside or be with his mom or his dad to help them around the house so he can stay away from fire. To connect to this , my parents have taught me to not play with fire.
Another example of how you should take care of a child so they won’t get into trouble is when Rufus tried to rape a black girl named Alice on page122 because she wouldn’t be with him. This shows how someone needs to teach him that he can’t make a girl be with him by raping her. What should’ve happened is that if she don’t don’t want to be with him he should look for another woman. To connect to this many people want to be with girls and can’t be with them so they have to keep on looking for other girls.
The last example of how you should take care of a child so they won’t into trouble is when Rufus fell from a tree on page 59. This shows how his parents don’t look after him. Rufus should’ve stayed on the ground because he had no reason to be up in a tree. Some kids have parents that really don't care or don't want to watch their kids so they get hurt from what they do.
In conclusion these are some example of how you should take care of a child so they won't do these attempts. you can prevent them from staying out of trouble by watching them and tell to not to do things so they can know what to do when their around unsafe places.
