Are Playgrounds Too Safe?

CPSI’s we finally did it!  We designed our way right over the dark side of the moon.  We have made our playgrounds too safe….at least that is what the New York Times is reporting.  If one thing that this story highlights it is that you can never make anyone happy.  If we want to let kids be kids and learn lessons of life, then we need to work on two groups – the parents and the lawyers.  My answer is this – if you want your kid to get over their fear of heights – plant a tree.  Do it in your own backyard, because every time you want to sue the school or city for an injury it comes out of public tax dollars and most people are tired of paying taxes.
