Shooting instructor shot dead by 9-year-old girl

Shooting instructor shot dead by 9-year-old girl | eParenting and Parenting in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
A nine-year-old US girl has accidentally killed an Arizona shooting instructor as he was showing her how to use an automatic Uzi.
Peter Mellow's insight:

A good parenting choice? I like this quote: 


"You can't give a 9-year-old an Uzi and expect her to control it," Scott said.


Why would you want to give a 9 year old an Uzi for in the first place?

Lisandra Duprey-Rodriguez's curator insight, August 21, 11:19 AM

So true. Spoke to my mommyhoodfun partner the other day about parenting not being something we learn to understand by reading a book or article. .I mean it's nice to have resources, don't get me wrong, but where in the book does it say, How to react when your child poops on you? What to do if your child vomits right in your mouth after picking them up? Or How to prepare for the one that will climb 4 pantries up just to get to the cereal they can't have? Um not one I tell ya. It's a whole lot of experiencing it and patience. :D
