Oh, really?

I was watching 20/20 tonight, and they were discussing when a child is too young to do risky things. They discussed a child bullfighter and a few others…and then it came to Jessica Dubroff. The little 7 year old who wanted to fly a plane solo, and crashed and died. Her mother had the nerve to say that it was NOT a parent’s job to say no. To guide, but never supress.

Oh, really?

I will say no to Isaac and let him know when a risky behavior, no matter HOW talented he is at it is too risky. He is a CHILD. I will not be standing over my child’s coffin when he’s dead at a too young age because I wasn’t strong enough to say no when he chose to do something risky.

 How can a person say that it’s not a parent’s job to say no? Especially one who has lost a beautiful, smart, talented child at age 7?

soapbox over.

    *rolling eyes*

    Some people just do not understand what being a responsible adult/parent means. It means having to often say no and protect/shelter your child. It means not always being the most popular person in your child’s mind. It also means trying to protect your child from injury, harming them self, and even death in some cases.

    You would think that the loss of a child would be a reality check, but clearly that woman has not learned. So very sad. What’s worse is that many other people share her same crazy philosophy.

    *sigh*
