Do the preparation task first. Then watch the video and do the exercises. Remember you can read the transcript at any time.

very good and i love this much

Why not))) But only not dangerous of course.

No, because i’m fear of snakes. It’s difficulty my baby touch in snake.

Well, I guess I would do it only if the snake is not poisonous. I think kids need to experience the most in their early age. That's a convenient way to stimulate their brain and learning skills.

Hi Carlos,

I strongly agree with you. And apparently, as the video shows us, the bounderies beetwen dangerous and harmless things have to be set from an early age.

No ..
I love it .

The question has been put in the right way: We assume that the baby won't be alone!

To answer the question above, I could let my baby touch a snake only if I've been ensured that that snake isn't dangerous and doesn't bite, and if a professional stay next to me.

If I know the snake isn't poisonous

No, I also hate snake.
