Little Boy Terrified After Skiing Down Huge Hill (Video)

Skiing isn’t always fun.

Regular readers may remember a video I posted last winter of a little kid psyching him or herself up to ski. We never see the child in question, and at such a young age, it’s hard to tell what gender he or she is, but it doesn’t matter. The beauty of the video is that the viewer gets to feel what the child feels as (s)he overcomes the fear of skiing down a big hill for the first time.

Today I stumbled (key word here) across another video of a little kid skiing down a big hill for the first time, except this experience isn’t nearly as positive. Don’t worry, the child doesn’t get physically hurt or anything, but he does take a tumble down the slope. This child seems much too small and ill-prepared to be on such a big hill, not to mention the fact that he is on an actual mountain with other skiers, not an isolated slope.

The folks at Hypervocal wonder if this is bad parenting or how kids learn to ski?

Many parents experience a moment where they’ve encouraged their child to do too much too soon. That in and of itself isn’t bad parenting. But you’d think that when the dad here (assuming this is his father) saw his child bawling in terror after being pushed too hard, he’d be a big more sympathetic and apologetic, no? And then to post a video of the experience? Hrmph. I dunno. I just wanna give that little kid a hug.
