  1. So true. My DD is still only young – 16 months – but I’ve started to let her go up and down the slide herself at a local soft play barn. Other Mother’s can’t believe how good she is at doing it herself, or how confident she is, but I showed her how to do it, so I gave to trust that she has taken that on board.

  2. Yes to this! Even though our hearts may be up in our throats when we watch them taking risks it’s so important for us to stand back and let that happen.

  3. Totally agree with this. So often I find myself saying “be careful, look out” scared my son might hurt himself. But I remind myself he needs to learn from falling on occasion. We all have to make mistakes so we can learn from them and move on.

  4. So true – I try not to be a ‘helicopter parent’ – children need to learn how to manage risks effectively and safely.
