  • Yes, my dd is 4 and nothing in the world scares her!

    Even though it makes us panic as mothers, there are benefits....my dd is a WONDERFUL swimmer, mainly b/c she is not afraid.

    We are also going to enroll her in gymnastics b/c I believe with her daredevil personality that she may just be a future all star cheerleader or something. I think she will EASILY pick up on the flips and tumbles b/c she has no fear ;)

    So even something that others may see as a "fault" or something they might not want their child to posses has its good points!!!

  • My 3 year old son thinks he can fly, lol. My 2 year old daughter, who use to be scared to jump off of our couch etc, is now FLYING also, lol. He'll climb on shelves, jump off of anything he can, he's totally fearless! I can't even begin to count the times I've taken him to the emergency room because I just KNEW that he had broken something! He never cries even if he gets hurt and it doesn't deter him a bit, lol.

  • YES! my 22 month old has already been in a full leg cast from trying to climb out of her high chair. Yes she was strapped in... That was the problem. lol. she tried so hard to get out that she flipped it over! She also has a constant lump on her head from running into things or climbing or jumping on things. She is going to need the revolving door plan at the hospital.

  • Two of my kids have absolutely no fear, one of these days they are going to give me a heart attack. Both of them were climbing before they could walk (my daughter used to scale the refridgerator) and as they have gotten older they have gotten more bold and will try anything.
