I’m sitting at a little restaurant. A parent and their child are on the way to the bathroom. The kid wants to touch the wall and the parent scolds them to not touch the wall. The kid says they just wanted to feel what it was like. (Bead board wainscoting) The parent says, “It’s dirty.”
I don’t remember being scolded for touching stuff, but I’m sure it happened at some point. I also grew up playing in the dirt and the trees.
The thing that was weird to me is that they are going to the restroom, so they’re going to wash their hands anyway. I hope.
Are/were you a germaphobe with your kids?
It you don’t have kids, do you think you would be?
Any funny stories about kids touching stuff they shouldn’t be? I mean, there’s that one kid that stuck their tongue to the frozen pole in A Christmas Story.
