The same daddy who wouldn't let our son go down the stairs at his 4th birthday party to retrieve a slinky citing safety reasons, today lets same son, 1.5 years later, use a flush-cut saw (with supervision) to shape snow blocks for an "igloo" he is building.

Does Daddy overprotectiveness go out the window this abruptly, or is this just the woodworker in my DH??

(Not irritated at DH, just incredulous.)

Blind spots.

I vividly remember my parents refusing to allow me to watch anything on television that was not on PBS as a child. No cartoons, nothing. They were too "violent." (Even Scooby Doo).

Yet, I saw all the Star Wars movies in the theaters (and I was about five and a half for the original Star Wars), and they thought it was perfectly acceptable for me to watch the original Alien movie, not in the theaters but I couldn't have been more than 10 at the time that I first saw it.

Cartoons? Violent and unhealthy for young minds.

Sci-Fi? Fosters a natural curiosity and enhances the imagination.
