Parks & Playgrounds

Helicopter parents over-protecting their kids at the playground?

Upon closer inspection, you may find out that he’s just a homeschool dad explaining (or at least pointing out) to their kids trying to climb up the play structure about the differences between steel, aluminum, and plastic. Or maybe they are talking about gravity, friction, muscles, body mechanics, or welding.

I sure hope they are using the time like that seeing as they are there anyway

Parks and playgrounds are equally as ‘playable’ in the rain and snow as they are in the summer. They are just played on a little differently. Alternate gravity and friction examples are enjoyed on a wet slide. You can fly off a swing into snow.
