Men fear helping out kids in danger
"Gareth Lee with his children Carter, 7, and Macey, 4. Men are in fear of helping children in need.
AWKWARD, scared and even guilty - they are just some of the emotions felt by men confronted with the prospect of helping an unknown child in need.
Sunshine Coast men, and others around the world, say it is a dilemma which is at the forefront of their minds almost every day as a society frightened by the threat of pedophilia deems them guilty of being a threat to children until proven innocent.
They risk being accused of inappropriate dealings for innocently trying to do the right and responsible thing by offering straight forward assistance to a child."
