Furious at DH, but am I overreacting?

It is pretty cold here, even if it is sunny, the northern wind is bone chilling.

I just came back after taking my parents to see the plot, and found my 3 year old running around outside soaking wet. Both his trousers and his jacket was soaked through. He said he was cold. Apparently "he only got wet 20 minutes ago". I find it appaling that he let his son run around in the freezing wind soaking wet for 20 minutes. He says I am overreacting, and "the boy is fine". Well, we dont know that yet, and I am trying to teach the children that the climate above the artic circle is different from London and if you get wet, you go inside. Other children who live here knows this.

Surely he'll learn to go inside when he gets wet, by getting cold?

I don't think I'd be furious, but then mine often run about in cold weather soaking wet.

It will be a learning curve for you all.

Could you change your name back ? I only recognised you by location. sad

LOL Bree. Sure.

I did not mind them running around wet in London. But here? It is 10 degrees (much like november in the uk) and freezing winds.

where are you?

That sounds like something I would do when I was young.

Dittany, I am in the far north of Norway. Further north than Iceland. Much further north than the north of Scotland.

You see this is why I love MN, I thought you were over reacting slightly, but she makes a good point re how long.

No... you are not being unreasonable.
