Helicopter Parents Should Avoid This Playground

It may look like a junkyard to some, but it’s actually a playground.  There are hammers and saws that the children can use.  They get dirty, figure things out on their own and learn to have confidence in themselves. The creators hope it can help children become more independent.

I always worry that I’m too much of a helicopter parent, but I would love it if there was a playground like this nearby.  I guess I’m not as bad as I thought.  Share this on Facebook if you’d love to see more playgrounds like this!
