Moms Talk: Playground Etiquette
How do you deal with a trip to the playground?
Do you read the posted rules when you walk onto a playground? Do you see people following them?
Some parks have posted rules and others don’t. Some are posted as no smoking and others are not. Some parks are intended for younger children and some are intended for older children.
Do you have your own rules when you take your children to the playground? My son can’t yet walk, so we don’t yet have any rules, but Katherine Martin shared her playground rules on Baby Center. Martin’s rules involve basically being aware of the other kids and the other people using the playground, such as not throwing mulch, not climbing up the slide or not dropping food.
Do you have rules for slide use? How about dealing with other children or parents?
