To anyone complaining about Sagan stepping on the packages and whatnot...  the package is thrown into trucks, they get bumped to hell, packages weighing more than Sagan's weight (which is what, 20-30 Kg?) are stacked on top of that package... if Sagan would mess such a large package, there's really something wrong with the packaging.
And kid near knife, 1m above the floor... really ?!   What's the worst that can happen, getting a cut? He'll learn knives are sharp and won't do it second time. 

Fall off the desk? At worst case he'll break a hand or a leg, you don't falling from a meter on packages... you learn to live in real world. 
Sagan probably couldn't even move from that spot as the camera tripod and Dave were in front of him, and he had packages around the sides.

Jeesh, such people...

Like i said, the only thing I slightly cringed at was Sagan putting the screwdriver in the cooler... now I know there's plastic there and the card won't get damaged but it still felt a bit bad. You don't care that much when it's a gift but when you pay hundreds of dollars you're more attached to stuff.

Ah, I see controversy in here!

Just wanted to tell you, that this was the only and very fist episode I ever showed to my girlfriend.

There were two reasons for that:
First. I wanted to show her, that a child can survive in a lab enviroment without poking its eye out with the very first screwdriver.  :scared: At first, she could not believe that someone would put such a dangerous tool in the hands of a child, but when she saw Segan measuring the parcel on its own she was sold. She saw that under the eyes of a lovecaring parent this can actually work - I am sure she never saw something like that before. Thanks you for calming my girl down, making my future a bit easier!  ^-^

second reason: I was so very impressed with your reaction when Segan wanted to put the screwdriver in the cam - all the time - just like you were doing it:
"Thank you, Segan!"
"Thank you Segan!"
"Thank you segan"

Other parents would have already shouted at their child, "NO!", "NO!", "STOP IT!!" countless times.  :palm:

Your "Thank you" were so very impressive and they show that there are just top quality solderjoints in that relation! :-+


She liked Segan's Chubby feet btw.

I came to this topic to write exactly these words, except that I haven't shown your video to my gf yet. Hopefully she'll get over your "annoying voice" (sorry - I like it) for long enough to let me prove my point. Also, your awesome parenting and the amazing response you get from Sagan makes me really really want to become a dad, but I still don't know if I well be good at it.
I'd love to see Project Sagan progress, please have him star on other videos!! I'd also love to see some videos/posts where you share parenting tips and stories. There should be a wiki for it!  :)
Keep up the good work!
