Ridiculous! Suing because your child was stupid and got hurt?! Keeping the monkey bars, which may be equally as dangerous if not more so! Parents being overly litigious because their chlldren do foolish things is "un-american"!

Censoring the word M-O-N-K-E-Y is also un-american.

If the kids are too fat to use a swing set, build a stronger swing set. Its a calorie burner, stupid parents just dont care about there kids health and are looking for the easy buck.

Might be better to eliminate teachers than swing sets. Ever been a kid raped by a swing set?

USAFREE, don't blame the teachers. I'm an aide at an elementary school. We talk about the rules (including NOT jumping off the swings) over and over. Too many kids simply refuse to listen and then mommy and daddy are looking to sue when their little darling gets hurt. It starts at home-parents need to teach their children some respect for authority, whether they attend a public or private school. I've worked in both and you're fooling yourself if you think you don't have anything to worry about in a private school.

You mean we could have sued the school every time I got a bump or a bruise on the swings or the jungle gym? Dadgum, why didn't anyone ever tell me this? I could have been rich! Shee-it...
