In the last week I’ve been: poked in the eye with a foreign plastic object, had my foot stepped on, been head butted, twice, kicked….in the head, kicked in the crotch, and had a cup thrown at me.  I’m not sure I’m going to make it to Yordies’ 18th birthday.  Although, I guess this abuse decreases with age since the amount of abuse from any one child seems to be inversely proportional to their age?  Or maybe you just become a smarter parent and stop doing stupid things like leaving the plastic drink/desert advertisement holder within arms reach of a one year old or lifting a child high enough that they can kick you in the crotch/head?
