What is the most extreme/bizarre/unusual thing you (or someone you know) has done in order to "shelter" or "protect" a kid from something scary/off-color/obscene/etc.?

My nextdoor neightbors were VERY overprotective of their two daughters.

1. They bought a house and removed the bidet from the bathroom so their daughters wouldn't ask questions about it (or mistake it for a short drinking fountain).

2. And they would ony buy female dogs for pets (and give them masculine names like Buddy) since they didn't want the kids to ask questions about male dogs (since their anatomy is more conspicuous).

Those kids are all grown up now. I think they did all right. One's in Peru in the Peace Corps and the other's teaching in Houston, TX.
