It develops resilience. Good on these parents for living their best life with their baby; that’s not going to be a kid who sits home afraid to do something.” A second person said, “OMG!!! I want to see more of her happy fearlessness!” A third person said, “This is amazing, and your daughter is incredibly lucky to have parents like you.”
