Parents With Young Children Can't Post

Hello Everyone! This is my first post and I went skydiving for the first time over the weekend. Like many of you I fell in love with it and feel like it's something I want to continue doing.

I'm fortunate enough to have a wife who is supportive of it if I feel it's something I really want to do, however I'm having some internal struggles.

I have a young son at home, 2.5 years old, and I'm the sole provider for my family. While I know the risks are relatively low, the result of something going wrong is extremely high. I'm just not sure it's the right thing to do when considering how important I am to my family. I'm sure that many of you have had a similar struggle at some point and I'm hoping to get your perspective and how you dealt with the situation.

I'm extremely excited to start AFF training, however I'm struggling with making the call to set it up due to my concerns outlined above.

I'm open to hear anybody's thoughts however it's difficult for those without children to understand.

Thanks.
