We had a family day today, which was great. We went fishing in our canoe and had a blast. We also had a wildlife buddy nearby, 4 ft alligator. We live in FL, so they are all over. We check a alake before we dip our feet. DS tried to stick his feet in constantly, a 4 ft gator won't bother anyone. But it worries me when it comes to ds lack of danger awareness and wildlife. To make things better, a venomous coral snake made his way in the house. I am deathly afraid of snakes. Thank god he made his way out without prompting. Now I am paranoid of ds coming across a venomous snake and approaching it. Since one got into our house, I am worried another one will. We took a kids safety course on snake identification. I tell my kids, don't mess with any they won't mess with you.
Most of the time something bad has to happen before he learns. I worry about him being bitten, how do I communicate this with him.
P.s. snake breeding season in fL, August until November. I was hoping my phobia would influence him. Nope.
