    Hmmm, should I not admit that I tell my kids to go away and jump in puddles? And that my 9.5mo has had to have clothes thrown out because they have so much dirt ground into them?

    This would have to be the strangest comment I've ever read on here. Surely it's a joke?

    Me too! If only I had exposed myself to more filth when UTD with DD she wouldn't have so many allergies!

    VP, the old me would have thrown it out but the new me (trying to let go and not taking this parenting gig too seriously) would have still used it.

    But I generally sit in camp 'a little mud and dirt is good, but other people's filth is just plain gross'

    It is lucky all of you have normal kids without a strong family history of acne and incidence of early puberty in your family

    And lets add autism on top where they get stuck in routines

    Many medical experts believe that exposure to dirt/germs is good because the body begins to fight things it doesn't need to when it hasn't been exposed to things it needs to, so can't recognise when it actually needs to kill off germs.

    Thats a very narrow minded comment.. my DS has acne and takes medication and uses an antibiotic cream daily and he played in mud, DSD has also hit puberty early as well and still plays in mud.

    Also my 3 nephews are autistic and also still play in mud.

    I understand that some children with autism may not like playing in mud and dirt, I know a few at my school love playing with their toy cars in the dirt and make tracks to play in. But to imply that people who do let their kids play in dirt and mud are not teaching their children self respect is a bit ridiculous, don't you think?

    Can I ask how early puberty is relevant to mud play?

    I find your parallel between absence of mud play and self respect odd. I think kids can understand that if they get dirty they are still great people, just great people who need a bath.
