My kids are 3 & 6. They take our 3 corns out several times a week for 10 mins to 20 mins at a time. Our corns came as yearlings from a breeder that handled them. The kids have handled them from the time they settled in. I have them sit on the couch so there is no worry of dropping the corns. My corns are corns that are constantly moving but try to get away VERY fast if stressed. We have never had a handling or stress problem. I sit & supervise so it is a good experience for snake & child. I've never had a biting attempt or any type of feeding problem.
Hope this is a bit of help anyway. Dar.
