Playgrounds

Think about all the things that your child can climb on at a playground. Even pieces of equipment not meant for climbing may become the next rock wall for your child. If you have a very young child, you should make sure that he stays away from horizontal ladders, ropes, and even high monkey bars to help prevent falling and injury. Look for playground equipment that has sturdy handrails and guards in case of falls, and steps that can help your child to safety. Always stay close and stay alert at all times.
