Talks With My Children

So I've had the pornography talk with my kids. The kidnapping and abuse talk. We've done a simplified "birds and the bees" talk. And we've covered in-depth the dangers of the stove, the oven - and to a lesser degree - hitting and running away.

It just never crossed my mind to have the treadmill talk with my kids...


One ER visit and a late-night scare in the regional burn unit later - I'm a wiser mother.

Have you had the treadmill talk with your kids yet?? You really should.

Wow! Who knew the danger of a treadmill? We just keep that sort of stuff out of the house. ;)

We had to have the treadmill talk with our kids when Diego was about that age. He's got the scar on his forearm to remind him of the dangers!

I've heard quite a bit about treadmills. One of the many reasons why we don't have one. But, poor Andrew. I'm sorry this happened to him. What a trooper. This will make him stronger.
