It wasn't discussed in any graphic detail but, in a way, kids were more aware of 'unpleasant' characters back then. We were allowed the freedom to play outside and had it drilled into us from a very early age that we shouldn't talk to strangers, accept sweets from strangers, stay away from Mr x etc. Obviously this was no protection from friends or family but I think our instincts developed naturally and were stronger than todays overprotected kids..

Yes, awareness of dangers without the lynch mob mentality.
