There are a lot of differences when it comes to how we all raise our kids. Some of us believe in certain parenting methods more than the other. Some of try one before switching to another. And all of this is done out of love. We want our kids to be happy. To be healthy and safe. Making these parenting decisions is a game of weighing pros and cons because for many of the decisions there is on right-all-the-time way to do this. A mom or dad over here might choose to do something with their kid that you would say is not something that you would ever do with yours.
And all that is great. As long as you are playing by the very basic safety rules and looking after your child in a way that’s not going to put them in harm. I’m not talking about cuts and bruises, that’s common stuff as a child who is exploring the world.
But there are ways that you can go too far with a child. We all know that seat belts and proper car seats are important for safety. Many of us run by the rules of needing to wear a helmet if you are going to ride a bike or play certain sports.
And I think that’s why this video that is on Instagram of a dad and his daughter is making so many people upset. It looks insanely unsafe — in a few different ways.
