How the hell did he get that nickname anyway?

ty stick: When my boy was 8 I got him a mini bullet bike from Pep Boys.
It went about 40 mph and he cruised the neighborhood in swim trunks, flip flops, dago T, and sunglasses. He was the coolest 8 year old around.


Dad! I didn't know you got out of prison.

kiwimoogle84: I've got news for you people- take away all the fun stuff, and kids will STILL find a way to injure themselves. Take my friend Ryan for example. At 7, he slipped GETTING OUT OF BED, bit through his lip and got a concussion. His parents didn't sue the bed company, nor did they require he sleep on the floor from now on.

I myself fell into a wall once and cracked my noggin open, after twirling around and getting dizzy. It happens.

Teach your kids how not to act like a dumbass when doing things like playing on trampolines and climbing trees. Teach them to be safe, not to NOT.


But we wouldn't want kids getting hurt having fun! It's bad enough that they're having fun instead of bettering themselves by doing chores or homework or volunteering or something, now they're injuring themselves going it. No college wants to see "I jumped on a trampoline!" on an application!

Likely to be knocked unconscious in a trampoline incident.


None of her videos involve trampolines. Or any kind of energetic movement, actually. :-(

Ha. Nice one. I was somehow able to do both.

What was that line from finding nemo? " Well, you can't never let anything happen to him. Then nothing would ever happen to him. Not much fun for little Harpo."

I understand safety, but car seats aren't any safer today than they were 15 years ago, and these days, it's effing rocket science to get them in and out of the cars. Took me 20 minutes to put my niece's car seat in. W.T.F.

It's overkill. One kid gets hurt on something, ban it forever? My cousin got a black eye from a book once, lets ban those too.

Well, I know exactly how long it takes to turn perfect garlic bread into a briquette in my broiler... Like, twelve seconds.

Not in my oven. The thing is hotter than the surface of the sun.

Anyway...not a thread jack. Really.

I'm proud of the scars left behind from each of the seven times I had stitches by 13 years old. Seven. They're great stories. And I honestly think that kids who aren't exposed to stuff have weaker immune systems. If it doesn't know how to fight off a cold, how can it fight pneumonia?

Just my two cents. Society should probably be glad I'm barren.

I got nailed in the head with a hockey puck when I was a kid. I bled like a stuck pig. The stitches are still in a memory book somewhere and my scar can be seen each time I get a fresh haircut. That's the only lesson I needed to learn. I've been mighty cautious ever since. No broken bones and I've only had to get a visit from the paramedics once since then...I was an adult and a dumbass, but that's a story for another day.

So we make sure kids face no actual dangers. Protect them from all harm.

Then they hit puberty and start doing dangerous things like they have no clue that their may be consequences to their actions.

No way these 2 thing might be related.

I have 3 boys and a trampoline. No broken bones, there usually are more than 6 kids at a time and nobody supervising. Perhaps because they all have trampolines on their individual houses, parents that were stern with the use of it and they are all high grade point average kids.

Burning Man has a trampoline on every other block. partially because part of the experience is to bring out your inner child, partially because they're a comfy place for a cuddle puddle. And of course, because bewbs are often already exposed.

Prouty will never forget the day, eight years ago, she saw her 8-year-old daughter Destini bounce off the backyard trampoline and land hard on her head and neck... Destini had been showing her mom gymnastics moves she'd been practicing when the accident happened.

So... this mom was directly supervising this activity, and was allowing her daughter to do flips and gymnastic moves. Which it clearly states in several places on the trampoline is A BAD IDEA NEVER DO THIS, and she is blaming the trampoline??

Mom, this accident was your fault. Not the toy's fault. Do not try to ruin it for the rest of us.

The word "puddle" makes me think that there are fluids involved.

Cuddle Puddle is the term for a group of people, typically under the influence of a feeling enhancing drug, who pile into a small space to hug, rub, and kiss each other.

Yes!!

Reminds me of the mom who is campaigning for more mirrors on cars, when she was just an idiot who backed over her kid in the driveway and won't accept blame for it. She is the one who chose to drive a HUGE SUV for only one kid. My car has no blind spots big enough for a toddler to hide in unless he literally laid down behind the back tires.
