It's sad... I understand that safety is important, but on the other hand, where is it going to stop? It's impossible to eliminate all dangers.
It seems very complicated to be a parent, nowadays, with all the do's and don't's...
and I find it's sad for the kids, really
when I was a kid, nobody was obese, allergic or asthmatic, and we had so much more freedom and space for creativity and experimentation... Now I see kids who only do activities with their parents. I would have find that so boring!
