My kids like to do things that make me cringe. Running full speed down the sidewalk when they were very young. Jumping from some elevated surface. Going higher, and then just a little higher, and perhaps a little higher than that, in a tree. I suppose they are like most kids in this respect, and I suppose that I am like most parents when I tell them to please be careful.
“I won’t get hurt, Daddy,” they tend to respond.
“Well, no one ever intends to get hurt,” I tell them. It’s true. Kids can fall. They get hurt.
