A reader sent me the link to the video below and asked me to post it on The PediaBlog as a warning to parents. Maybe you’ve seen this or other videos produced by Joey Salads (I hadn’t) but I’m sure you will find it as disturbing as I did.


This comment on Facebook reflects what the reader who alerted me to the video was thinking:

PARENTS! Have a PASSWORD with your kid that you both know. Growing up my mom and I had a password “wakey wakey eggs and bakey” which if my mom ever sent someone I didn’t know to pick me up from school (which would never happen) I would ask them for the password. If they couldn’t deliver the password, I was to run away and seek help from a teacher. This could save your kid’s life.
