It’s normal to feel hyper-protective of kids, but think back on all the crazy stuff YOU did, and you made it through, okay… Well, mostly.
Buzzfeed has a list of things people say they did as kids, and then later, as adults, realized were really dangerous.
The highlights include:
Catching and playing with spiders – shooting fireworks at friends – destroying stuff in old buildings with asbestos – goofing around with lawn darts (which it’s STILL hard to believe existed in the first place)…
Jumping off the roofs and lofts of sheds and barns – putting a car in neutral while in a parking lot – messing around on streets or roads at night…
Climbing more than 12 feet up a tree – fooling around on staircases – walking out on a frozen pool or pond – and sticking things in electrical outlets.
