Letting Kids Climb a Tree Is Not a Crime
By sellabitmum on August 10, 2012
I take my job as a mom pretty damn seriously and I know a major component of that job description is to keep my kids safe. And I also still remember being a kid and climbing the neighbor’s trees with my cousin to steal some apples and how she fell and broke both her wrists. And yet tree climbing doesn’t scare me.
Because I cannot wrap my kids in bubble wrap and give them a long list of things that they cannot do because maybe they could get hurt. Because how would this list ever have an end point.
So I will let them climb trees on a perfect summer night. And as God as my witness I will not tell another mother how horrible she is for doing so. Ever.
