#13: Up on the Roof
And the award for most irresponsible parent goes to… Look, I will be the first person to say that some people coddle their kids too much, never letting them try anything fun or do anything that stretches them and helps them grow in confidence and competence. These are the kids who burst into tears if you look at them funny and who seem to get sick or injured eight or nine times a day.
But there is a threshold below which kids are just too young to help Dad with roofing projects, and three years old is well below that threshold. I don’t care how good the kid is at climbing; that is a catastrophic accident waiting to happen.
