Although the world habits dangers of violence and gore,
a young child's task is mostly to play
and to explore.
-FESTERWOOD PROVERB

The job of a mother involves knowing when to hold your child back from the dangers of the world, and making sure the child can handle himself when he becomes too old for you to keep him.

INSTRUCTIONS:
+ Use the mouse to control the mother.
+ You can keep your tiny child near your home protecting him from danger.
+ Letting your child explore alone allows him to gain experience and eventually be able to handle himself.

Put things in perspective for me.

After finishing this game, I cried.
Growing up, I never really had that good of a relationship with my mother, and this game finally made me see things her way.
The forest, in a way, is an allegory for the real world. As the mother, you watch your child grow and eventually prepare himself for these dangers. However, your purest intetion is to make sure that your child is safe, if he can't fend for himself, and he dies while trying to, you have failed in your mission.
See, I never truly understood how this felt until playing this game. Growing up, I thought my mom was just being a bit of a control freak. Now, I see that she was only trying to keep me safe.
This game made me realize how easy my mother has been on me in recent years, and how little credit I've given her for it.
Mr. Breed, I thank you for making me realize what I have been oblivious to for the past 16 years of my life.
Keep up the great work, my friend.

Letting my kid do whatever he wants if he dies oh well I'll worry about it later.

My dialogue throughout the game

"No, don't go that way! That is a F'ing BEAR!" "Good, stay close to the house....GODDAMNIT! Why would you go for the dragon!?! You are 5 years old!" Yeah, it was pretty frustrating pretty frustrating, but I can imagine real parenting would be almost as hard. (Except obviously no Dragons or trolls lol). Oh and I ran across an issue where I was leaning on the wall to the right and the mother went through it and instead of being locked IN the center circle part I was locked OUT of the area with the house
