Mothballs Are More Dangerous Than You Know

Our neighbor put mothballs around our complex to try and get rid of some skunks that had been hanging around.  I told my 4 year old that they were poison and that someone would get very sick if they were to eat them (specifically, him, his sister, other people and skunks).  He seemed to understand the idea that they were poison”

A few days later we were playing outside and he said to me:

“Baba, if Skunks eat the mothballs they will explode!”
