Thank you for all of the wonderful ideas and wisdom. Lots of great ways to play with fire!

In general, this all really helped me rethink how I was parenting. As she has gotten a little older, I started establishing rules without even realizing it. She's exploring more, but still much too young for long explanations, so I was taking the easy way out. It didn't seem like it, I just thought I was keeping her safe, but the responses helped me realize that it will be much better in the long run if I support her in her interests instead of thwarting them and relegating those activities to a time or place out of my presence.

Thanks again!

love, sarah
