One Response to Is Your Child’s Playground Safe?
It amazes me that 45 percent of the 200,000 playground-related ER visits result in serious injuries. Playgrounds give kids perhaps the most natural opportunity to develop social skills, but the dangers of these facilities can be huge and often go unnoticed. Serious injuries to children are devastating, both financially and emotionally, and I suppose the only solution may be exhaustive monitoring by parents to make sure their kids are safe. There seems to be no other realistic counter to these risks.
