Arguments like...'children should be allowed freedom to be children' are only valid up to a point and that point is that you must use common sense. We have raised 3 children and recently 5 grandchildren who have a marvelously adventurous life, sailing, canoeing, skiing, rock climbing, fishing and hunting but they have never been on the water without a lifejacket and on the two occasions one of them went arse over tea kettle into the water they were wearing a life jacket.

I am passionate about lifejackets because the last near-drowing I managed ended up as an organ donor.

Sad story that reminded me of part of a lecture by Jordan Peterson regarding children and boundaries:

Sad story, I am sorry for the little girl.

The photos remind me of the "Every Sperm is Precious" Meaning of Life skit.
