I look back 50 years, when all us as children ran around unsupervised constantly in danger's way. Yes we got bumps, scrapes, and broken bones, but nobody died. Were we lucky? Maybe, but probably not. Instead, we more likely learned how to avoid the dangers of everyday life by living through it. Now we are over-protective of our kids, and they won't learn the hard lessons of life since they won't be living through them.
