That, my friends, is the question I ask today in my alternate life on ParentDish.com.Â I zydaztsfdk
am really getting sick of all the warnings about dangerous toys.
On a very related note: Today there was a report about all the hideous dangers of holiday Â ornaments. I agree: You probably don’t want to put a hand-blown crystal ball from Bavaria in the crib next to the toy hammer. Â But please. The report Â mentions 76 Xmas-occasioned hospital visits over the course of 13 years, or about 7 a year.
Maybe while we’re at it we should start issuing Â warnings about holidays requiring dress shoes, because of the danger of tripping over untied laces. Or holidays where the family gathers together in a single room, Â as overcrowding on the couch could cause someone to slide off. Â And let’s not forget the very real dangers of candy canes!
