I don't think it's entirely appropriate that a child chasing a
bouncey-ball can so easily run out into the street and get killed by a
passing car. According to MMWR over 500 children per year under 14
years of age wander out into the street and and are killed by a car
(US.) Another 30,000+/year are injured seriously enough to need an
emergency room visit.

Ban cars or at least limit them to under 5 mph!

And we're not just talking about a kid seeing some bare breasts (isn't
kids seeing bare breasts the most appropriate use of bare breasts?),
we're talking DEAD.

Or maybe the better answer is: Don't let your young kids wander out
into traffic, or allow them to use table saws, etc.

Sarcasm aside isn't the right answer, for starters, software
interfaces for kids?
