A polite knock wouldn't cause fear from parents or children

so how would that compare? Invasions count on the element of surprise, so an unsuspecting, albeit naive, parent might allow a child to answer. If they can enter without knocking, all the better for surprising folks who otherwise might defend themselves.

Aggressive SWAT count on shock and awe to intimidate the residents, so no good parent would EVER send their child to answer their pounding on the door, as your first post implies home invaders might.
