Most of us of the older generation had to learn to operate certain equipment or do certain things on the farm that would have an element of danger. A horse could kick the daylights out of you, you could fall off the hay wagon or fall out of the hay mow if not careful, etc. etc. BUT, we were told and cautioned about these dangers before we were put into these situations. In other words we KNEW to be careful. Why do people say that operating a log splitter or other machinery is too dangerous and then buy their kid a dirt bike and let them ride it anywhere they want, and when the kid crashes and gets hurt, say "well, that's life" ?
In the olden days children sometimes at the age of 8 or ten were sent to live with a tradesman, ie. stone mason, shoemaker, wood carver, etc. in order to learn a trade for life. If a young person is smart enough to sit and push buttons and play video games, they are smart enough to learn responsibility and learn how to do some honest work.
