    My friends an I didn’t have all that. We survived. Except for that one kid who rode into a tree, and that other one who fell out of a different tree, and the one that stepped on the rusty nail, and the one who fell off the roof…

    There was the one who fell into the canal, the one who ate soda crystals for a dare, the one who hit her head on doorpost and the one who was gored by a bull . . .


    Happy days!


    Seriously, though – if kids never take risks, how are they going to learn how to take responsibility for themselves?

    Kids don’t want ‘safe’ – they want ‘risk’ and ‘challenge’. If us grown-ups can’t provide that in a (comparatively) protected way, they’ll steep themselves in drugs and crime.

    I remember the kid who threw the Lawn Dart (remember those?) and didn’t move out of the way. Ouch!

    Give him some goggles so he can’t see too.

    Proper fit is as important as useage.

    … when my cousin slid down a slide barefooted & caught his pinkie toe on the side of broken metal… or when my baby brother clobbered my sister in the forhead with his 9-iron…. or when she fell off the bed/trampoline and broke her collar bone… yeah, we had fun as kids!

    Circus performers who use balls don’t wear all that stuff.

    My Dad’s sister rode a sled down the barn roof once. The sled didn’t survive, but she’s still going strong 80+ years later!

    I rode my bike around the neighborhood without a helmet. BUT, there weren’t nearly as many cars in the 1960s and no one was texting and driving. Now, I wouldn’t dare ride my bike without a helmet. I’ve had people in cars back out of the driveway right in front of me.
