(NaturalNews) There is something to be said for wanting to keep our children safe from harm. It's as natural an emotion for a parent as there is. But at some point we have to ask ourselves as a society if we're going to let abject fear take over our lives or if we're going to stand up and overcome our fears by being proactive and solutions-oriented.

I'm talking in particular about new security policies implemented by a number of schools in North Texas, beginning this year. According to CBS Dallas-Fort Worth, new tradition-killing rules prohibit parents - parents, mind you - from walking their kids to the front door of their school.

Per CBS-DFW:

All of the extra security is in response to what happened nearly nine months ago at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. It was December of last year when a gunman opened fire at the school, killing 20 students and six adults.

You, parent - stay by the curb

In the Hurst-Euless-Bedford (HEB) Independent School District, the report said, parents will have only the first week to walk their young ones to class. The new "security" policy will go into effect after that. But that's only because registration and enrollment is taking place that first week.

The new policy is just another way public schools are injecting themselves into the traditional parent-child relationship. This horrible policy is sending the message to kids that their parents can't keep them safe - only the school can.

It's upsetting more than a few moms and dads, and rightfully so.

"I really want to take my son to class. Since it's his first time in school," Tamera Moore told the local CBS affiliate. "They may have security, but I want to know where my kid is going at all times."

Others are perfectly willing to allow their role to be subjugated.

"As long as I can see him walk in that building that will be fine. Because once he's in that building they'll take care of him," Angela Shamblin said.

That's right, mom. Just stay by the curb. We've got it from here.

Outsourcing our children's safety

Refresh my memory - was it a parent that killed all those kids at Sandy Hook? No. I seem to recall it was some deranged little psycho who was most likely wigged out on prescription antidepressants.

More from CBS-DFW:

For years, parents were given clearance to walk their children directly to their classroom, if they wished. But enhanced security measures on public school campuses include the elimination of parents walking their children to classrooms, after the first week of school.

The Richardson ISD, for example, hasn't allowed parents to walk students to classrooms for years.


HEB officials say it's no big deal; they're just doing what lots of other overreacting school boards are doing.

"It's very busy on a campus first thing in the morning, dropping off kids arriving for the day," said district spokesperson Judy Everett Ramos. "So, being able to know who's in the building, who's in front, who's deeper into the building, is very important in keeping our kids safe."

"It don't surprise me a bit," one parent said. "All the security going around, all the things going on, it doesn't surprise me at all."

It doesn't surprise me either, it just disappoints me. When we have become a society that requires parents to outsource the safety of their children to others - especially unarmed school officials - something is deeply, deeply wrong. If anything, schools ought to be allowing armed parents to take their kids to class. That is a "security measure" with teeth.
