If everyone whose child had an accident was a bad parent there would be no good parents on the planet. Silly, silly people.
Excellent example of when to use this phrase, though!
POD my parents were fantastic parents
Grade school - HS

Dislocated her knee (Soccer game)
Sprained her knee (Track meet)
Broke the other wrist
broke her leg
Broke her foot
Broke both knees
Fell down the stairs to a beach house walked away with a technocolor face and upper torso but no broken bones.
So as a kid we got why don't your parents protect your sister. Now she get accusations her DH beats her. (Note for 3 of the 4 accidents they were in different states. The 4th one she was on one mountain and he another skiing).
I have a couple of cousins with similar records. Hockey, rugby, baseball, football, soccer and a family full of people who participate tends to be a rough and tumble group. I'm the least athletic and I have a 2 -3" scar on my thigh from an encounter with barbed wire. Honestly my parents were more upset about that than sis's broken bones - because I didn't tell them. A week after it happened sis told them because it was infected. I wasn't hiding it - just didn't occur to me that it could be serious.
