You know, that's funny because I refused to do that to our home with our daughter. Everyone was strapping on things all over the place. We never did. Now, we can take her just about anywhere and if we tell her not to touch things, she's pretty good about it.
It was just a matter of keeping with it, it wasn't easy. I guess that it would have been easier to just give up and move everything. But I think that it was better in the long run.
I believe in the, "They'll do it once and never do it again," ideal of rasing a child. People don't think that they learn, but they do. It they do something and it hurt, they will remember it.

As a Hunter Safety Instructor, We would be attacked by the Anti s with comments like, "I don't want my kids near guns" etc.
My response was simple, "You may not want your kids near guns, but what IF, just what if your child was at another friends home and another kid came into the room with a Firearm, wouldn't it be a comforting feeling to know, someone in that room would have the knowledge to know what to do to turn DOWN the level of the possible volitle situation?
We had kids in our courses that their parents had no intentions of giving them guns, but were in the course to learn about SAFE Handling and above all what to do in the above example to ensure everyone lives without gettng hurt.
I was however trilled recently when my not so gun loving wife inquired what she would have to do to keep said guns in the event something happened to me, so that she could eventualy pass my firearms onto my children.
