So, the stick thread has me pondering. I am actually (in a completely non judgemental, mean no disrespect, peace and love kind of way) surprised that people don't let their kids play with sticks. I mean I wouldn't like them to poke them in people's faces but I don't think they would want to do that anyway...
Anyway, this isn't really about sticks. What about things like climbing trees? Playing outside barefoot? Jumping on a trampoline with no net covered in detergent? Jumping off the shed roof onto a mattress? Turning the trampoline on its side, jumping on it and riding it down to flat Pulling all the swings off ths swingset so it can be used as a gymnastics bar?' Wearing your togs in winter?
The above may or may not be examples of things that occur regularly in our house
