As a parent, 1 of your ultimate jobs is to ensure they are always safe and well protected. You start your parenthood journey by baby-proofing your house, (along to your parents) your car, and almost everything around them. You avoid all the places that might be risky for them. You constantly explain pros and cons of their own exploration to keep them alert and aware, while you are watching them as a hawk...
Till they take you off guard and hurt themselves right in-front of your eyes!!
And then you will learn something new....something that is not pleasant at all.. Thinking of all the bad possibilities that might effect your children is totally not the same as actually living them!
You learn there's an UGLY part of Parenthood and I'm going to share it with you.
