We are usually considered pretty heartless by other parents. Our kids hurt themselves and we don't pay attention to them. They have to pick themselves up. They also know that if we get involved, it's likely play time is over and they go to bed. We are fans of letting them figure out things the hard way; sometimes with a warning first, "That seems like a really stupid thing to do..." *gets hurt* "told ya."

This shit is next level though.
