Summer dangers: Dress the kids in bubblewrap?

I received an email from Parenting.com yesterday with the huge headline, “11 SUMMER DANGERS AND HOW TO AVOID THEM!” Well, course, I just had to find out immediately what was included in  the list of eleven.

Complete with the corresponding fear-mongering subtitles, here’s the list of 11:

“Sneaky Beach Bummers”

  • Sand
  • Rip Currents
  • Jellyfish
  • Shells

“Hidden Park Hazards”

  • Jungle gyms
  • Spiders
  • Poison Ivy

“Backyard Drags”

  • Pools
  • Bees
  • Sandboxes
  • Mosquitos

It’s enough to make a new parent want to wrap their children in bubble wrap and keep them indoors forever! What do you think of this article?

    Wait, you mean you might find *sand* and *shells* at the *beach*?!?!? Perish the thought! Wait, pools and sandboxes might be in back yards, and jungle gyms at the park?!?

    Whatever shall we do about this menace?

    My vote: GO PLAY ON THEM!!!!!!
