I swear, I constantly tell myself Drake WILL get brain damage. He bumps his head all.the.time. I do my VERY best, but it just happens sometimes. Like, tonight, he tripped over thin air while running down the hall and fell head first into the hallway wall where it meets the floor. Dead on. On the corner. He cried for like 15 seconds and then was fine. But man is there a bump! He also has 2 bruises from two bumps earlier today. I am going to have a heart attack! Is it "easy" to get brain damage from bumping your head like 3 times a day?

Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,
and encouraging instead of demanding.
It's about listening, understanding, responding and communicating.

It is actually helping him develop a stronger skull brain injuries are rare and have noticeable symptoms like them acting out of it and vomiting. Kids are designed to bonk their heads frequently as toddlers. Don't worry about it!!! Lol... M is gonna have a nice thick skull too!

Sweet little guy. I fell and busted my head on a glass table when I was maybe 1; got stitches and all. My mom also once squished my head in a car door, and I have no brain damage (depending on who you ask) I think he'll be ok. I understand the worry though! Kids can be so clumsy, especially when they're growing. My grandma's rule was always better out than in, so if there's a bump, don't worry about it.
