Kids do bounce. Not high. You have to really pay attention to see it,… but they do bounce.
There may be a broken limb or three. Or a mild to moderate concussion, but they do bounce. Therapy, both physical and psychological, may be required, but they do bounce.
Later in life, they may overreact to their having bounced by making their own kids live in a hermetically sealed bounce resistant padded bubble.
But they do bounce.
And that’s my revisionist-history-parenting-story and I’m sticking to it.
