That is such bullshit!! Kids need to play and deserve to play and enjoy their youth. I was always running around the playground, swinging on bars, running from boys, etc. I have scars to prove it but it hasn't damaged me in any way shape or form. I have had fistfights on the playground but then we settled things afterwards. Those were the good ol' days when you could punch someone out and then go about your business without having to worry about litigation, etc.

As a lunch time monitor at the school here I can tell you that children LOVE the swings. The only thing dangerous about the swings is the kids fighting to get to the swings first.

We are making our kids scared of the world around them. It is crazy!

when i was in elementary school, some bozo had decided that itd be cool to put 5 swings all in a circle (a very large circle), so us kids decided for about a month or so that it would be so awesome to try to hit each other in mid-air.

"ready?"
"jump!"
"ah man, that was cool! i almost hit you, i felt your leg!"
"lets try again!"


the good old days.

I'm offended by this. It'* the same principal as isolating children from any bacteria with all the anti-bacterial crap people use these days. Good idea people! Set your kids up to be extremely susceptible to something as simple as a cold! BRILLIANT!

Back in elementary school, we had a HUGE playground. Swings - regular swings, tire swings, bridges, climbing areas, the whole wazoo. BIGASS rivets and pressure-treated wood was the name of the game. It was big enough such that if we played tag, it was possible to set the rule: "if you weren't it, you CANNOT touch the ground!"

But no. They tore it down about 5 years ago. Replaced it with some colourful plastic shenannigans

Pretty much everything I wanted to say has been said.

This is rediculous.
