Quoting Dr. Paradigm Shift:" Yeah, you know, you have to pick your battles. I'd rather clean up a little mess than listen to screaming, myself. Kids are always experimenting and discovering. It gets messy sometimes. No big deal. "
I have one of those doofy kids that freaks out over sticky/weird feeling things, so I'm pretty lucky in that sense. If she knows something makes a mess, or if she gets it on her, she's not likely to want to mess around with it again.
