    Beyond considerations of safety and etiquette, do you let your child climb up playground slides?

    Are you talking about going up the slide and not the ladder?....If so and no one else is using it, why not? It's a playground, hence the name....Let kids play....lol

    Exactly , if empty, go for it. It there is a lot of kids using the slide, no way in hell. There are rules that should be followed ar that point , like wait your tun.

    Agreed - do what you want if no one else is using it, but don't be the kids ruining it for others.

    I’m curious about the story behind the reason for the question?

    I voted yes, but as others have stated, that only goes if no other kids are using it.

    I teach my kids to go down the slide if someone is coming UP the slide...a couple of wipeouts and they will learn the hard way.
