I won't let my kid have fun at the fair...

5 years ago I saw the aftermath of a horrific accident at work. A little boy fell from a ferris wheel at a carnival due to what was later determined to be "operater error." I vowed then and there my children would never ride a Ferris wheel. Over time that rule (for fairs & carnivals) became "if it leaves the ground, you're not on it." To some it seems extreme but as under regulated at those events are I refuse to risk my children's safety.



What unusual rules does our household have and why?

We don't allow toy guns in our home and my kids aren't allowed to play with toy guns that belong to their friends.

 Not an actual rule but most people think it is strange that my ds 6 and my dd 4 have never been babysat by anyone.

My kids are not allowed to walk alone anywhere until they can physically drive... Kidnapping is a huge fear of mine and if I can prevent it by doing this then so be it...
