Eh, I’m not a big fan of ball pits but other than that I say let him get exposed to shit. It strengthens the immunity unlike the snowflakes who get sick over everything because they live in a bubble. We gave him peanut butter when he was a few months old for the same reason. No peanut allergies here. I fight against my parental instincts as much as I can to not be overly protective. He’ll get dirty, he’ll fall down, and ultimately it’ll be good for him. Not that it doesn’t kill me to see him get hurt sometimes, but if he’s 12 and not allowed to walk to school by himself then you have my permission to murder me. 

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
