Security is . . .

Dear Reader,

My kids were reading an old Peanuts book called “Security is . . .” Each page has a simple sentence like “security is . . .  owning your own home” and then a matching picture, in this case Snoopy on his doghouse. One in particular struck me: “Security is . . . finding your mother in the kitchen when you get home from school.” I imagine this was not at all a controversial book when it came out (in the 1970s at least, maybe earlier). But I wonder how this would fly today. If they were remaking it would they drop this page? And is that because our children’s idea of security has changed or because some parents would feel very insecure if we suggested that their children would like to find them at home at the end of the school day?
