1. Let kids be kids.
Armenian children are able to explore, and do what they want as long as they aren’t in grave danger, with the caveat that they dress appropriately. Kids get scolded more for not wearing a hat than playing around with fire. Minor bumps and scrapes are a part of life, and teach children their boundaries. If something does happen, grandma will put toothpaste on it or grandpa will massage it with rubbing alcohol. Mom and dad may give you the talk about being safe, but grandparents will always step in and tell them to let you be.
