It's a Tire Swing For CHRISTS SAKE!
Ok. So I read this article and was like are we kidding?
It's a TIRE SWING!
Yes I understand there were "injuries".
But, did these injuries occur, because people weren't watching their children?
Because children get pretty rowdy on a play ground.
I wasn't watching my kid, and they went face first down the slide and landed on his/her head....NO MORE SLIDES ON THE PARK!
Sooner or later, with this logic, a child's playground will be a flat, padded area, of astroturph... because you can't have grass in a playground, you know, children have grass allergies.
(IMPORTANT SIDE NOTE: In case you can't catch it, there is a shit load of SARCASM going on in this post)
It comes down to this.
And if I offend anyone, I apologize.
WATCH YOUR DAMN KIDS.
I don't mean like every second, I mean you have to pee eventually.... and kids should be allowed just to hang with their friends without the Eye in the Sky Mother watching...
But, if you GO with your kid to the park... KEEP AN EYE ON THEM.
If they start getting wild, or out of line, in which their behavior could hurt them (or another child): SAY SOMETHING.
Oh, if you notice another child (not your own) acting out... still reprimand that child too... No reason for your kid to get hurt because some other little monster (my favorite word for my son) is acting crazy (because he is overwhelmed by the coolness of the playground). If their parent has a problem, too bad, you're looking out for the safety of their child, that's how you present it, and then there should be no problem.
Stupid Tire Swing Drama.
I am SO glad they're putting it back.... It was stupid to take it away.
