Imagine…a playground with real vertical plus kids that could handle it. This playground is actually SAFER than playgrounds today. Why? NO, it’s not the equipment. Think again. It’s the kids using the equipment–they moved better in these days. They had “real” physical education and real teachers–not someone who just threw the ball out. They were taught movement through restorative gymnastics–not just sports.
We have written before about the so-called “safety” issues of today’s playgrounds and how they are actually less safe because our kids do not know how to move, so be sure to explore the other posts as well if interested.
