Who are afraid their precious snowflake will die if they climb up the slide (like every child does)

(obviously Im not talking about manners, Im talking about not letting them when you are alone in the park because its "dangerous")

I don't let my kids climb on the skype either I'm afraid it will break the computer. ;0)

That thing looks unsafe.

By the way I don't let my kids climb up the Skype because it blocks the kids coming down and it's rude.

I don't let My son climb the slide because it's irritating to the kids who actually want to use it properly.

I don't let my kids climb up the slide because that's not what a slide is used for. It's used to go down. It's rude to be climbing up and down the slide when there are other children on the playground who possibly want to go down the slide.

Lol. I'm sure there are moms who would freak out watching ds and me. I'm getting him a junior loft bed with stairs instead of a ladder, and a slide you can take off when you want. It's actually really cool. The mattress sits about 10 inches below the sides so he won't roll out. That way he can play on the slide even when the weather sucks which is about 90% of the time here.
