So my previous post wasn't directly related to the broken collar bone, but nobody has any concern with kid-ICBMs being launched down the hill by their folks : ?
There's no question that this is a big problem, and provides a real opportunity to get a child or someone else on the hill seriously injured. I think the reasoning behind this is somewhat different, however, in that I attribute this to parents over-estimating their kids abilities, in most cases. For whatever reason many parents are blinded by their kids true abilities or lack thereof. That said, this reasoning doesn't excuse the parent's use of poor judgement. As I've said many times, stupidity has no cure.
