Have We Become Too Concerned With The Safety Of Children?

I sometimes think that many parents, especially mothers, would love to, unwittingly”wrap their children in cotton wool” while many dads have a tendency to favor a bit of rough and tumble.I am not for one moment minimising the dangers out there, they’re very real for sure. I’m referring to a much different type of danger.

But has this coverage gone too far? I believe that in many ways there is a lot of focus on the safety of kids and not enough on just letting them be kids, and act naturally, doing what children have always done, and survived.Here’s a quite humorous tongue in cheek article by a writer who quotes out of a newspaper article concerning the safety of kids.Pupils at the school may still perform these life-threatening acts of reckless acrobatics, but they need to do so only in the immediate presence of a trained gymnastics teacher.Here’s a fairly funny tongue in cheek article by the Exact Same author:AS I was carefully sitting in my desk, preventing paper-cuts and saturated fats, I read the information that Drummoyne Public School had effectively prohibited cartwheels, hand-stands and somersaults.Students at the school might still perform these life-threatening acts of irresponsible acrobatics, but they need to do so only in the immediate presence of a trained Trainers teacher.Or a practising chiropractic pro. I do not recall, I wasn’t concentrating.A quick Google search said that other things which were “banned or indicated for banning in NSW public schools comprise energy drinks, mayonnaise, kiwi fruit, hugging and the term, Easter”.Some reckless individuals could believe that these bans or almost-bans are similar to packing children in cotton wool and not letting them just be children, but I disagree.Public schools are terrifying places full of perils such as food, drink, and wide open spaces. We have to protect future generations from items like scraped knees, questionable self-esteem, fun and anything else that might help form thickly well-rounded adults.In order to make certain our darlings are safe should they venture out to the government-sanctioned big wide world for book-learning, I suggest we ban, hard crusts.To minimise bleeding gums which can become dangerously infected resulting in death, sandwiches which have crusts any more robust than a moist piece of paper is going to be prohibited.Indeed, let us just eliminate crusts completely to be on the secure side. The bonus is a decrease in curly-haired kids, who can make a playground seem untidy.Laughing itself is not particularly dangerous. However, the sharp intake of breath instantly after a normal laugh signifies a choking risk, especially if there are really no hard crusts or insects within inhalation variety.It is recognized that laughter is a natural, automatic reaction in certain situations and cannot be helped. So students are advised to prevent any situations which may be considered”humorous”. Anyone attempting to be comical will be suspended immediately.It is a scientific fact that people who walk are in a far higher chance of tripping more than walking into walls and moving to the shops to purchase cigarettes than people who don’t walk.Walking may be permitted in the immediate existence of a suitably qualified doctor or cautious athlete – in which it is absolutely crucial.There’s a saying that”a little knowledge is a dangerous thing” – it follows, then, that a lot of knowledge could be even more harmful and therefore undoubtedly the safest thing would be to have no comprehension in any way.Not a single war has ever been waged without knowledge (although a few boxing games have) and nobody was shot without at least learning where to get their hands on a gun.One hundred per cent of people who suffocate are proven to have been breathing immediately ahead. I discovered the article hilarious and while the writer makes it all a bit fanciful, I think she is not too much off the mark. Children are a lot more resilient and intelligent than we give them credit for, including infants.I chose when I had kids that I wouldn’t be putting protective pieces of plastic round the corners of tables. Nor safety locks on cabinets. And teach them how to drink and eat out of non traditional plastic food dishes and cups.My fear for these was plastic. As for those cot bumper pads that they were eventually reported to be a most dangerous so-called safety item for infants.Infants and very young children use their eyes and legs and have sufficient intelligence to manoeuvre themselves about all these obstacles they find since they delightedly crawl and creep around their houses.We shouldn’t spoil it for them keep watch while allowing them the pure pleasure of investigating their home atmosphere.Despite not needing all of these safety measures set up for my babies, they thankfully explored the rooms of the home without any injuries. Not one of them opened cupboards and drank poisonous kitchen stuff.
