To the editor:
In response to this letter [Heather Fuller's
letter]... My 4-year-old
daughter was also a member of this day-care class. I was very
impressed with our children's decision to take these things directly
to the teachers, seeing them as "bad." The outcome could have been
detrimental in regard to accidental ingestion of the contents or
fire from the lighters.
Having the police come was ingenious, stressing the "badness" for
a child of this age. The one thing that my daughter kept repeating
to me was that they were good for not playing with these things and
police were good to take the bad stuff away.
Thanks again to the teachers at Christian Child Care and the
Lincoln Police Department.
