Great post, I meant to put up something similiar yesterday.
My wife and took this as a reminder to set our 6 year old down and remind her that no one no matter who they are, should not be touching her inappropriately and to report these actions if they occur no matter what the person might say or threaten.
Everyone knows about stranger danger, they even teach it to kids at school, but as you said often times you read about people that are not strangers at all committing these acts.
