Watching them, I can't help myself recall of how careless we were then when we were kids. We would play in the rain for hours, even after the rain stopped. We would run in the muddy waters not knowing what was in it, oh yes, we didn't care. We would even play with mud as if it was clay, using it to form something we can use for fun. Then we would play tags all day long with our clothes just dried up while wearing it. And as soon as we were finished we took a bath to wash away rainwater, as we were always told by elders, that being soaked with rainwater would make you sick.
It's okay to be protective with our kids, especially that there are a lot of diseases today. But being overly and sometimes unreasonably promoting strict measures just to keep our children safe is another thing. We must also let them enjoy things and exposing them to these conditions will somewhat improve their immune system since our body is created to adapt and build its own defenses naturally, just as that when we were kids.
There will be risks along the way, but they will only be kids once... I just can't take that away from them. I enjoyed mine, its time they enjoy theirs. Yahweh bless.
