Parents have to look after their children. We are not responsible for them. We have 1 big swimming pool and a lake; both without fences and we are in nature, that means a lot of animals are visiting us and sometimes some tarantulas, spiders and snakes
The Pantanal is the biggest swampland on earth, if a frog will be in your room its not a sign of insufficient hygiene.
