Playground Safety Advice from the Perspective of an 11 Year Old


When addressing playground safety issues, I thought it would be interesting to post an article from a child's point of view. My 11 year old daughter provided me with the following article on Playground Safety:

On the playground, kids just want to have fun. Boys like to play sports like football and soccer. Girls like to play on the jungle gym. The boys' games can get pretty intense and the girls' jungle gym play can get competitive.

The teachers monitoring the playground cannot see every child playing at once. Let's just say your child is participating in a football game at school during recess. There is a fifth grader on the other team while your child is only in the second grade. Your child may have the chance to catch the ball BOOM! The big fifth grader tackles your child. After the incident, the teachers come running toward your child. They call you, the parent, and tell you about the terrible occurrence.
