    Confession time - I let my boys run like wild animals while outside as long as they aren't hurting anyone. In fact mud puddle splashing in the rain is a must!

    But the only thing I can't handle is them having toys guns. There's just something about a toddler pointing a gun at my face that makes me want to become a hostage on the floor shivering with fear.... Eek!!

    I'm a pretty relaxed parent, it would stress me out thinking about all the what ifs. Life is hard enough. I'm the deal with it if it happens type..

    Lol, the shed roof thing they aren't actually allowed to do anymore, they did it a couple of times (aged 12 and 8). They do jump off the back stairs onto the tramp though...

    DS is only 2.5 but I let him jump on the trampoline without a net/mats. I will watch him until he's a bit bigger though.

    I let him play with sticks, climb, jump in puddles.

    I worry about him but if he's anything like his dad he is going to be in for heaps of crazy things so I need to pick my battles

    I wish he wouldn't play with toy guns. I tried so hard His uncles however love arming him with the smaller nerf guns and letting him go. I've had to make a rule he can only shoot certain things. Doesn't help that DP likes guns and will play "shooting" with him.
