im a huge believer in hands on education, with anything that is socially considered dangerour. i introduce my kids to snakes as soon as they are intrigued. if it becomes second nature to them, they dont have that curiousity factor constantly brewing and feel the need to play with them.

when i was kid, i learned way early on how to handle and shoot guns. my parents never kept them up, or locked up, they were always just sitting in their closet. but i knew not to play with them when they werent there and that if i wanted to shoot them or handle them, all i had to do was ask when they were or got home.

too many parents just say, thats bad dont touch, without fully explaining why or letting them experience those things and getting the curiousity out of their system.

kids are gonna wanna play with and handle what they are told not to, without a reason why and proper hands on education
