If you see a child climbing something that could be dangerous, make it safe by helping him or her down to the lower area.

Also, they should be dress well if it’s a cold winter day.

    I have a friend with a toddler and we sometimes go to the playground with the little girl. It happens that the mother is attentive, of course, keeps the girl hydrated, which is good, but I am too protective and cannot leave the girl out of my sight! I admire mothers so much! Hope you have a great new year with joy, health, fun and success!
