When I was a kid growing up, I spent a lot of time on the playground. And I had lots of bruises, bumps and scrapes to prove it. That was just part of being a kid.
If you grew up in the 70's, or 80's you may remember some of these playground staples. You rarely see them anymore.
Yes...it's a good thing that playgrounds are safer now. We don't want kids to get hurt. But I wonder if we've taken away some of the adventure of childhood? I wonder if we've made kids softer in the process? I wonder if we've taken away the source of very important life lessons?
Did you ever play on any of these?

Do you think we are making kids "soft?"
Have we taken some of the adventure out of childhood?
