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 will try to wait my turn from now on.
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.
+1 to what others have said.
Mostly its if the playground is busy, the kids waiting patiently to gown doen the slide cant because someone cant teach there kids to , play with others , wait there turn, or in general just share.
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.
I tried that, unfortunately my daughter is nicer then me
Way too much time on your hands. Why not?
It's good exercise.
What else is there that would not be classified as safety or etiquette?
Bigantlers - where are you? How about the story behind the question?
As others pointed out, beyond safety and ettiquete, what reason would there be not to let your kid climb up the slide?
+1 what the others have said. If we have the place to ourselves by all means go up the slide. Heck I might be the one going up it as we play tag/dodge ball or what have you. If there are others then be respectful and take your turn going down. If there are small children ie 5 or younger I typically try to steer mine away from the area altogether so they don't accidentally knock someone over.
I've never seen a playground with traffic marking, signals or arrows for traffic control. It's 100% built to play.
That said, my kids have been yelled at enough to know if a kid is coming down, you are not welcomed to go up - and I don't want to see that. Simply put, I yelled at my kids and they act better than those who are not instructed with a forceful yet loving manner... Common Courtesy is practiced here.
