For me, it would have to be letting my child play outside, in the dark, and in the street. Like playing kickball or basketball. Also, riding in the back of a pickup truck.

Become a teenage parent, and so far, I have evaded that with my 19-year-old. The way I drilled my daughter I will do it three times more with son.

Well, I grew up in a trailer park. And I remember as young as 5, my mom let me wonder around the whole park, and my brother who is nearly 2 years younger than me. LOL! She'd say "get outside" and make us stay out until lunch/nap time. I have no problem with kids playing outside, but my daughter is nearly 5 now and there is no way I'd let her go out all day and not know where she is. KWIM?

Play in the street and until dark.  They are allowed to play outside, but only in the morning during the week.  We have a very quiet street.

I wouldn't ever let them ride in the back of a pick up truck. I don't let them play outside in this neighborhood at any time of the day. I don't let them go on sleepovers if I don't know the parents.

 Run the streets all day, ride without seatbelts, ride in the back of a truck, I'm sure there are many more that I can't think of right now.

Everything that's been mentioned above!
And doing flips. I'd do "maromas". Put your hands and head to the floor and roll forward. I saw my son do it and I was like "you'll break your neck! Don't do that!" lol

I'm sure there's more, though. Lol
