The danger of putting things in books that kids might imitate???

IN THE NEWS: Local teen escapes being swept over a water fall
He [the teen] recalls thinking about a young character who fell into a river in a one of the Pendragon Adventure novels by author D.J. MacHale. The character knew to stay away from the middle of the river, where the current was strongest, and to let the water carry him feet-first. Seattle Times article  

Reaction from the author...
As someone who writes for kids, I often get push-back from various studios/networks/publishers etc. who are worried about my putting things in shows/books that kids might imitate at home and get in trouble. Or hurt themselves. So…it’s nice to see that it can work the other way too. Nice work, William. Glad you’re okay. DJ MacHale's blog
