I haven't read the other thread yet but yeah i let my kids play with sticks, get muddy and have fun.
As long as they aren't attacking other kids with them or hurting other people then its fine.
I think outside play is important and so is learning about cause and affect.
You can tell a child don't do this don't do that because such and such can happen but it goes in one ear and out the other.
When they go ahead and do it and hurt themselves then they learn something.
Obviously i don't mean that kids should be allowed to play on the road or stick their hands in blenders though.
A Childs best toy is nature and their imagination.

No i dont let my kids do those things. If that makes them bubble wrapped, so be it.
My kids, my choice, other peoples opinion on it = meaningless.

I definitely don't think it is Helicopter/Free range and nothing in between. I am very over cautious with things like public toilets, kids walking places on their own, sleepovers, etc. We each do what we feel is right.

I was massively helicopter when DS was younger, have lightened up a lot. I don't think any less of those who do helicopter, it's no less or more responsible. Would be a pretty boring place if we were allthe same.
