If you plan to homestead with children, let them explore. Let them get dirty. Let them be kids. Kids will get hurt. Expect it. You can and should try to minimize the dangers for your children, but don’t smother them out of fear. Being too overprotective can make them into fearful adults, even causing phobias that rule their lives. Pray for wisdom on walking an appropriate line between caution and suffocation. And, always pray for YHWH to keep your family safe. Ultimately it is His hand that holds our every breath.
