Do You Allow Your Kids to Play Outside?

NIDO Advanced Protectus 3+

I'm not gonna lie. I've always been overprotective to my son ever since. It stems from the fact that he's the only kid I have (at least for now), and also the paranoia that you never know what's going on out there. You never know what might happen when you're not looking. 

I guess that's understandable. I'm a parent after all. It took me quite some time to fully come into terms with letting Reiko play outside or within our neighborhood without me hovering around him. It would always freak me out when he'd go home with bruises, scratches, or some wounds from running and playing. 

My husband told me that we should allow our son to be a kid, and experience a real childhood instead of just letting him play video games and watch YouTube all the time. We should allow him to go out, and socialize. When I was still working in the corporate world, I never allowed him to go out to play because no one would look after him. Now that he's a little older and I'm working from home, he's already allowed to play outside, provided of course that we know where he is.

To make sure that we're still nearby to guide him, we always advise him to play around the neighborhood only, and only play age-appropriate games. From time to time, we check on him. When he's in school, we put our utmost trust in the people that take care of him (e.g. the teacher). 

He will have bruises and wounds, but those will heal through time. I realized that my husband was right. Letting our son explore the environment will also make him self-reliant, and independent. This will also strengthen his immune system! Then I remembered my own childhood when my brother and I would climb trees, and bike around our neighborhood! It was fun, and I want my son to experience the same! 

As parents, we can't blame ourselves. It's natural that we worry about our kids, and that we want to make sure they are healthy and safe all the time. But kids will always be kids. They will be ready to explore and experience the world anytime so it's best to have trusted partners to keep them protected whenever we are away for work or we need to do other tasks. 

Aside from Reiko's daily vitamins (which I often forget, my bad), Nido Advanced Protectus 5+ keeps him protected. He has been a Nido baby/kid growing up. I only breastfed for one month and after that, he's been drinking Nido all the way. There was just a stage when he stopped drinking milk because of the transition to a different Nido variety. He probably didn't like the taste that much.

I'm glad that there's a new variant of Nido that he likes. I brought home one box for him, and see he if he likes it. And guess what? He did! So I bought another box. I'm so happy! I've been wanting for him to drink milk again because he's so picky with food, so Nido is a perfect supplement. I tasted it myself - it's sweet and creamy that's why he likes it. ;) 

NIDO Advanced Protectus 3+ (and 5+) has Lactobacillus PROTECTUS, with the probiotic strain L. Rhamnosus, which not only helps protect children's tummies, but also helps support their defense against pathogens in the upper respiratory tract. 

In every 45g serving (4 tablespoons) of NIDO (3+ for pre-school kids, and 5+ for school-age kids), there are at least one billion colony forming unit of L. Rhamnosus present. 

So let's face it, we can never be fully around our kids. We have to let them go at some point so it's important that we help them develop strength and self-reliance at an early age. How about you? How do you protect your kids? Do you allow your kids to play outside?
