As you have noticed this kid barely less than 18 months, is seen busily trying to climb those slippery steps (there was a drizzle) of The Giant Causeway, Northern Ireland.
The Giant Causeway is a UNESCO world heritage site.
The Causeway displays polygonal columns of basalt rock, resulting from a volcanic eruption some 60 millions years ago.
And I have noticed that the mother was telling the kid to be careful, but the child was too enthusiastic, unaware of the dangers from slippery rock.
What is wrong with parenting since time immemorial?
“A lot of mothers will do anything for their children, except let them be themselves”. Banksy
And from where this tiny tot is getting this energy?
Scientifically, it’s said children have more energy than endurance adults.
Is it a good idea to control the kid with a constant reminder of dangers during playtime?
I feel parents should be bold and not have negative thoughts about the child’s capabilities and encourage the child to enjoy its risky play of course under watchful eyes.
Risk playing is thrilling for the kid and the child can assess its ability.
