I just got my kids a set of slides for the backyard. They’re a lot of fun, and there’s a lot of things to do with them. I use them a lot, especially in the fall when my kids get cold. I always say it’s a good thing to use them to keep everyone warm, but the downside to using them is that they’re not very safe.
I don’t have kids, but I know lots of parents who do. The way I use slides is similar to what everyone else uses for kids, except mine are all made of plastic. I find that to be surprisingly good for keeping kids from sliding down walls. I use them to keep my son busy and to take him outside more often. I also like to use them to keep my daughter entertained.
In theory. In practice, you can’t always count on kids staying still, and if kids do slide, it’s usually on their heads.
If you’re not a parent, you can easily find yourself playing “what if” with your kids. You could say “what if your kid slides down a wall” or “what if your kid slides down a glass table.” You could always say, “well, I’ll let you try to slide down a glass table first so you can see how it feels.
The only downside to this is that you have to teach them to slide. This seems a bit harsh, but I guess this is what they are going to be doing forever anyway. As it turns out, kids get bored quickly so it’s important to keep them occupied. This is especially important because it can lead to problems as kids get older.
As a parent, I do not want to see my child sliding on a glass table. But I guess for kids their age that’s fine. I mean, I guess if they don’t want to slide, you could maybe give them a few pointers.
They are probably used to sliding on ice and snow for ice skating, but can they do it in a hot car? Probably not. And if they want to slide on the hood of a car, they might not know what to do or where to look.
I am not a parent and I have never slid on a car hood. But I can see that a lot of kids will slide on glass. Of course, if your kid is a boy, I would recommend not using any kind of table, or glass, for your slide. Boys slide and girls slide, and boys slide on tables and girls slide on glass. So I would say to avoid it.
I would also say to avoid using a glass for a slide. It looks like you might get a few scratches, but boy, will you learn to slide.
Kids slide on glass and on metal. But I would never recommend using a metal slide for a kids slide. It won’t give you as long of a slide as glass, but it’s not very safe. I would still use a glass slide for kids slide, but only if it’s really, really, really broken.
