Kids need to be protected but not babied to death. Let em grow and learn.
I agree! Kids need to explore, play barefoot, climb trees taste the odd bug etc.
Caitlin sometimes nicks a sip of my Amarula liqueur when she thinks I'm not looking. I just pretend I didn't see. We all do naughty things at some point. Better my kids satisfy their curiousity now than end up drunk and in trouble the first time they get offered alcohol.
My children walk barefoot most of the summer, they don't have computer or TV games. They play outside every day, Caitlin gets a tiny glass of wine or a tot of Amarula on Christmas day and a tiny glass of champagne on New Years Eve. Daniel is younger so he just gets a sip from me and sometimes a sip from daddy too.
They eat fruit and veg each day, they only drink water, milk and diluted fruit juice. They are both healthy and active children and they look it too.
I'm not raising my kids with junk food and shoving them infront of a TV screen when I don't feel like being the mom.
