Okay, I'm laughing as I write this because I officially think my dad is crazy. Literally...he needs mental health services but my mom won't talk to him about it. I'm on "bed rest" and pregnant with my second child. My son is two and he loooooves the snow.
We live in North Dakota (about an hr from Canada). The weather today is at 11 degrees and -8 with the windchill. Normal at this time a year. We go out in the snow when it's "warm" enough and when DH is home from work for the simple fact that I can't pick my son up when it's time to come in. Well my dad seems to think that I should let my son go outside in the backyard by himself. Our snow comes up to my son's tummy right now by the way.
But my dad thinks that this will build confidence and he won't freeze to death outside cause he'll know to come in when he's ready. Oh and he won't get stuck in the snow regardless of how deep it is. Although the last time we took him out in the snow DH had to pick him up and bring him inside. So my dad said I will have a wimpy kid who just watches tv all day because I won't let him outside and play "survival of the fittest"
