comment What is the opposite of “steep”?
Anything more than about 45 degrees would be steep enough for a pedestrian to navigate. Many answers seem to be in regards to amounts less than maybe 30 degrees. But in your example, an incline on the order of 75 degrees would not be steep?

comment Is there a word for somebody who cares for his/her child too much?
@gnasher, alternatively it could be not causing harm to the child but seeking attention from others for the slightest symptom the child may have. ie. by exaggerating it or by fabricating symptoms that don't even exist. this isn't necessarily harming the child.
