Social media has made it easy for people to criticize other’s parenting styles and The Doctors are weighing in on two such videos. The first is of a man bungee jumping with his 2-year-old against his chest!
In the video, the child appears calm but parenting expert Dr. Deborah Gilboa notes she may also be frozen in fear! Unlike the father, the child is not wearing a helmet. While the father claims the child wanted to do it again, The Doctors say that child is too young to be making those choices.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon says bungee jumping is a risky activity, especially without a helmet! OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry questions what type of company would even allow a child to do this? Child psychiatrist Dr. Domenick Sportelli looks at it from a physiological standpoint, saying the effects of g-forces and the acceleration and deceleration could have unknown effects on a small child’s body.
The next video is unanimously considered adorable, but was it wrong for this mother to feed her small daughter wasabi? Dr. Gilboa thinks it was fine! She says we want children to be adventurous eaters but then when they try something adventurous they get criticized!
Dr. Sportelli doesn’t fully agree thinking it’s a bit sadistic. He worries this may be creating a child who is actually afraid to try new things because of this negative stimulus. Dr. Gilboa counters the mother didn’t force the daughter, she asked her if she wanted to try it. She thinks if the mother praises her daughter for trying the wasabi and being brave, it will encourage that behavior in the future. Dr. Sportelli isn’t having it. “I want my child to trust me and I think if I did that to my child, they’d think I tricked them,” he says.
