It's not just the height, it's the security and feeling in control. She asked him if he wanted to climb the tree and he said no. So she put him in the tree! I'm not saying it was evil but it's insensitive child management. He might have been quite willing to try the tree under other circumstances.That’s really interesting! With the FFC standing next to William and MFC, I doubt she could put William in a higher position in a tree without being on some kind of mechanism to make you stay higher, like a milk crate or a ladder of some kind.
Maybe William felt safe because MFC was holding his legs? As opposed to being lifted into a tree by the FFC? On that, how heavy was William? Does anyone know, cos how high do people think the FFC could have gotten William if she was on the ground herself? I can’t imagine it would be greater than 5/6 feet high?
