We encourage children to "be brave" because bravery is a goal in its own right, and so slight injury is a good thing, an opportunity.
Like abundant food, risk-free childhood is not necessarily good.
Children do not get muddy, bruised or bloody wrapped up in an online game.
It might work out ok, but to be on the safe side - expose your children to pain.
Get them outside and bravely facing the cold, the mud, the rocks and wasps.
Think of a swing frame as a gateway to the outside.
While it's unlikely that they will get hurt on the frame itself, something out there will get them: ready the magic kiss.
