Overprotectiveness is fscking dangerous.
When our kids leared to climb onto the couch we told them to be careful, knowing full well that they would eventually tumble back down on the floor... which they did. Unsurprisingly they learned to be careful rather quick. They also don't touch the oven, they know it's hot and avoid it accordingly. We don't subscribe to overprotectiveness. Subsequently, I found the news that using red as a grading color and playing tag is too traumatising totally and utterly ridiculous. Fortunately Finnish schools haven't prohibited playing tag just yet. Argh. Via Blogdex.
