This is my car. It used to be on the collumn but is now on the floor. The NSS is still connected to the collumn and is not setup to work with the floor shifter so the car can be started in gear.
The only issue I've had with this was back when I was in tech school after basic training and my dad was driving the car down to Texas for me so I would have a car with my wife and daughter there. While driving down, dad could not get the car started after stopping for fuel. He had it towed and the regulator swapped out before the mechanic figured out the collar on the collumn was turned enough to open the NSS, preventing the ignition system from operating.
Other than that, there have been no issues. As far as children in the mix, whoop that little butt and make them mind on a daily basis. Teach 'em to not touch that which does not belong to them. Be certain they face repercussions when they do touch something that does not belong to them...even when no harm was done...teach them to respect the dangers of a garage and being around cars...be their parent, mentor, guidance counselor first and their friend second.
