Kidnapping vs. Babysitting

Scott's Tip Of The Day: Choosing the right words when constructing a sentence is key to conveying the intended meaning. For example: If you say "I offered candy to a kid in the park, then kidnapped him and locked him in my basement" people might interpret that as threatening and/or disturbing. This reflects badly on you and there may be other undesirable consequences. You don't want that. However, if you say "I think it's important to give back to the community. No child should go hungry and I make sure every child in my community has something to eat and a roof over his head" people will admire you for your socially deviant behavior.
