Of course she'd have gotten pranked back, it's the nature of the beast.

What's wrong with society is peoples notion that everyone goes suing each other for the slightest indiscretion. Life hurts, accident's happen - horsing around plays it's part on toughening you up for the real world. Well the real world we used to live in when coming home from a hard days work you actually used to physically ache.

Guess everyone thinks they are a precious little snowflake these days...

Good god, I still have black grit in my knee from when I was 9 arsing about. Matter of fact I rarely had skin on my elbows or knees till I was 14. Fell out of more tree's, off more swings and head first down more slides / hills /stairs than I can count - lost teeth. Got tango slapped and got a perforated eardrum. Got pushed into nettles. We all did this to each other, we all got each other back and we had a hoot...

Nah never sued anyone... I earned my Tom Boy scars and I wear em with pride.

I guess some folks get a hoot out of pain.. and perforated eardrums.. I prefer to have working ears..and scars do nothing for my ego..

Have you ever been a kid? Cause you are looking at this wayyyy to seriously. Not to give you a hard time or anything but you must have been sheltered if you didn't partake in any rough housing like this.

And I wouldn't call my lawyer if someone did that to me. Seriously?

I laugh at my kid when she gets payback for one of her pranks, ohhh nooss im a bad parent


A payback is a different story.. but even those can lead to life long injuries.

I still don't find it funny to laugh at someones pain.. ohhh nooos.. im a bad person

Ah gabby, come on...this is just child's play. I would say something if it got out of hand, yes. I have to say, I am somewhat old fashioned still and my kids love to pile sleeping bags, pillows and blankets at the bottom of the stairs and see who can jump from the highest step...hope it doesn't make me a bad parent. The way I see it, one of my dudes has spent enough time in hospitals kicking cancers butt in his little life time to hold back in life - not saying be mean to people - but accept reality. Kids do this by the minute every day. Time for life lessons to work their majik in my opinion.

Also, I was just making a lame attempt at humor, but really, if someone gets hurt maybe they should be wearing helmets and gloves?

Well my ears work perfectly thank you, eardrums have this wonderful ability to heal. Kids themselves have quite miraculous healing abilities. I can't even dwell on the pain I experienced, as a kid you are too busy thinking about what to do and explore next to worry about the pain..

As for scars doing nothing for youre ego, well I think that speaks volumes about peoples insecurities. How on earth do you see stretch marks and scars from having a child? I'm rather fond of mine...My scars and laughlines tell their own story of my life. Why shouldn't we wear them as badges of honour?

I wasn't referring to this video in particular when I mentioned lawyers.. was merely saying that those who thinks its all fun and games.. and a hoot.. often end up going to lawyers when their child gets the brunt of it... with a life long injury.

Yes I have been a kid.. and we fell and hurt ourselves.... but we didn't make a past time of trying to intentionally hurt others.. for a chuckle.

Maybe I am being too serious.. but the op asked a question and I answered it honestly.

Darn..I must really be a bad person for caring about the kid.... I mean really.. only an idiotic moron who lives in a box..would have any concern.

It's funny because it's unexpected and looks like slapstick comedy.

Because it's funny to watch Tao choosing to experience not knowing how to fly.

Namaste!

please.. stretch marks and laugh lines are not what I would call scars of horseplay.... they are a natural product of life..and I don't have an issue with mine.

But go ahead and wear your horseplay scars as a badge of honor.. .. I find other things to be more honorable.

I know this was not directed at me... But for what it is worth, I wouldn't laugh in the situation you provide.

My first instinct would be to check on them and make sure they are alright....

I got my children by plenty of wrestling and rough and tumble, not a turkey baster.

Hey Gabby. No, I wouldn't. Big difference. If you are indicating that face planting on wet grass is the same as face planting from 8 steps up, it isn't the same. You can't be afraid that every little thing is going to hurt someone. Long live kids doing crazy stuff!!! (and yes, I now have grey hairs and we HAVE had accidents)

pleeeease..gimme a break... I know how children are made.. and not everyone likes their sex to be wrestling and rough and tumble.... too much information that really doesn't apply at all to what the op was saying.

Just remember you said those words next time some thread is started on a fatality of some kid while the kids were doing crazy stuff...

and yes..a cement floor is different than grass.. but trying to stop your fall with your hands..when you get the "rug pulled out from under you" can lead to some very serious wrist injuries.

My guess is when some death or very serious injury is reported from childrens serious horseplay.. most will say.."where were the parents?..can't they conrol their kids?"

Well I suppose anything I say here won't make sense to you - there are limits to everything. I see it differently is all - I don't agree with pulling the rug out or tripping someone etc...never indicated that - and as I said, in roughhousing, YES, there have been injuries. I am not a parent who watches my children every second - they have a certain amount of freedom as pertains to their ages and maturity...often times one or the other will run in the house with a bleeding knee from crashing on their bike/scooter/skateboards...and?
No one is talking about pushing someone off a roof. There is dangerous and then there is everyday that could result in something, and that is again called life - all the maybe's you never know.

yes..everyday life can throw you curve balls.. but testing the limits of how far you can take things in every day life is the key.

I realize kids will be kids..and mine were..especially the boy. There were times I'd let some things slide,..and times I had to step in and put a stop to it..even though they protested it was fun..and they were being careful.

All I could say to them at those times..is.."yeah..its all fun and games now.. but when someone's eye is taken out..what are you going to say then?" .." when you say you wish you hadn't of played that game..it will be too late..won't it?

Oh look now who's going too far...I won't even begin to comment on the infantile parrot quality in which you answered my last post.




Just remember you said those words


Really? I've been on this planet a few years and I for one cannot even remember one story of a prank gone wrong. Children step in front of cars all the time, some even have fatal sledging accidents - a few may well have met their untimely demise by a badly executed prank.

It's a big world we live in, somewhere out there there's millions of kids doing silly stuff everyday...Getting wrist injuries too. Probably hoping they bust the wrist on the hand they write with so they can bunk off school a few weeks more to do *fun reckless stuff*.
