Well, I just said we have all our presents wrapped and under our tree with our 3 year old.
I only have one child. I do not have a lot of experience with other children. It's absolutely not an issue with our son. He would just not do that.
All kids are not the same.
Besides, my son is not really unsupervised for any long period of time. He likes us to all play together, not play on his own.
