ABSOLUTELY! Playgrounds, lakes, swimming pools, water parks, ice arenas, you name it, I bring my kids to have some fun and try new things and adventures, and immediately imagine all the potential injuries, about which I say nothing, so the kids play worry free…..while I stay vigilant and worry. This is truly a hazard of the job.
What is very difficult for me is to see at playgrounds and pools — the number of caretakers staring at phones as little ones play. Yikes.
