Climb UP the slide - do it!

7 Great Reasons why you should let and encourage your child to climb UP the slide at the playground!


Living in densely populated Hong Kong has many perks. One of them being the great public playgrounds that are scattered around the districts. But as any parent can tell you, sharing the playgrounds lead to many growing areas, for the children and parents alike. 


There is nothing as antagonising, then the body language of another parent as they cluck disapproval over the activities of your children. My children love climbing up the slide. UP! They aren't that excited about sliding down, but rather enjoy the challenge of climbing up. Now of course, I do interject when there are others using the slide, and encourage my children to let others have a turn first. But even on an empty playground, where the only other adult is 20 meters away, I still can hear the cluck! 


So to my immense joy, I found this great article, from the site describing the benefits to climbing up a slide! 


No more shall the clucks of disapproval sway me from my children's developmental enjoyment!
