I hear you man. Teaching kids to respect the things that can hurt them can goes a lot farther then just hiding it etc.

I grew up in a house with multiple hunting rifles kept in it. One of the first things my dad did once I was old enough to understand what he was telling me was to take me in, show me where they were, what they were and explain what they could do. Then he proceeded to tell me now you know where there are, know they are locked up and have no reason to go looking for them or anything else.

It was a very simple yet effective lesson.
