TM reader and Flickr pool member donaldsquire posted this photo of him and his helper in the demolition phase of remodeling their kitchen. From what we can see, this room is in pretty good — if ungloved — hands.

It just goes to show that you’re never to young to help Dad rip stuff up. I know it would have ranked tops with me when I was his age.

And yes, we’re sending two pairs of gloves, even though one pair might take a while to grow into.

    Looks like you should send some safety glasses too.

  2. Bill says:

    I don’t know, I have a 5 year old and a 3 year old and they don’t need ANY tools to destroy a room.

    I don’t really care if dad wants to be a dumbf***, but the kid should have protective gear: gloves, safety glasses, and a dust mask.

  4. Bob says:

    Like everybody else is saying. Where are the safety glasses?!?!

  5. mike says:

    Dust mask!!

    Ditto on the Glasses, Dust Mask and Dumbsh*t. Can you say lead and permanent disability? As an ex behavior specialist, this kid was money in the bank for me. If his dad lets him “help” a lot, he’ll have the attention span of a fruit fly.

    Hey, I’m still waiting for those gloves.

    Did you know plaster can have a 2% asbetos content. It is also pretty much guaranteed to be painted with lead paint. Lead and asbestos exposure especially to the young is horrible. While someone who already has a fully developed brain and nervous system may not have too much issues with lead exposure, it is unbelievable that someone would expose their child to this or to possible asbestos. I hope this is only a photo op and the child wasn’t exposed for a very long time.
