  • I was thinking the same exact thing! Way to go that is definitely A++++ Parenting! How about paying a bit of attention to what your 6 yr old is up to? I pray that that poor baby in that hot air balloon stays safe and they get him down out of the sky soon :( 7,000 plus feet up in the air would be scary to an adult I cant imagine a poor 6yr old :( I am keeping him in my thoughts and prayers!

  • Danger, and intelligence on what to go near or touch is taught at home first by the parents. A stove, knives, a car in the driveway, matches or lighters, a grill in the backyard, a pool... these are all things that could harm or kill a child.

    My thoughts aren't why is it there rather did the child know better than to go near it without an adult. Fact is, there are a lot of children every year that drown in pools, burn themselves on stoves or grills, play with matches and lighters or try to drive their parents car when they all knew better... it doesn't make it right but it does and can happen without any parents intention.
