I love to swing. The swing set was always my favorite piece of playground equipment as a child—and as an adult! Just last week, I was visiting my hometown of Midland, Michigan, and walked to my old elementary school where I hopped on a swing. I find swinging to be therapeutic—it’s probably the soothing back-and-forth motion.
But did you know (cue ominous music) that swing sets are deadly? According to reports, there are more playground injuries involving swing sets than any other piece of playground equipment.
How do you feel about it? Are the school officials being safe or are they being ridiculous?
