4. Please take turns and hand signal to other riders when it's safe to go. Before going down ramps or into bowls, please look to the other riders who are waiting their turn. If everyone goes at the same time, that's how accidents happen.
Keeping these thoughts in mind will keep your children safe and having fun. I can tell you that of the adult riders that I interact with, almost all of them are more than happy to see the kids there learning and are even willing to offer advice (hence the purpose of this post). Let's all keep in mind the golden rule that we tell our kids day after day, "Safety First."
5. If your children are not riding something with wheels, they should probably not be at the skatepark. Running around like it's a playground is a recipe for disaster.
3. Skateparks are like playgrounds with no age restriction. You will be interacting with adult riders who are there to ride.
2. Please explain to your children the need to watch where they are going at ALL TIMES. Skateparks can get busy and it's impossible to avoid a collision if you're not watching where you're going. If your children are very young then you should be watching them carefully, especially with adult riders present.
1. PLEASE HAVE YOUR KIDS WEAR FULL PADS. Most skateparks require this in their rules. It's not just a trend; it's a good idea. It avoids serious injury (also wearing a mask would be nice as well but I'm not going to open that political can of worms).
I have a small PSA here for #parents with #kids who ride #scooters and #skateboards. Having grown up with skateboards, I know that there is a “#skatepark #etiquette” that is an unwritten rule whenever you go to #skateparks. Thankfully, it’s very similar to the same type of etiquette that you would employ when you go to a playground. As a parent who also skateboards with my child, I am asking the following of other parents to please share and pass on to avoid injury:
It's funny how tech companies are lazy about diversity & inclusion but absolutely insistent on supporting IE11 for like 3 users
Personally it severely annoys me how "I <3 NY" has become this brand that everyone wears blindly. Coming from the East Coast, you will not see me wearing one of those t-shirts. However, I can _totally_ get behind a "Anarchist Jurisdiction" t-shirt: https://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/doj-designates-new-york-city-as-an-anarchist-jurisdiction/2627588/?_osource=SocialFlowTwt_NYBrand
Don't get me wrong; I LOVE Halloween and I LOVE horror films, but I don't take my young children to them for a reason.
Call me crazy, but I feel like #SpiritHalloween crossed the line with these #anamatronics involving #kids. They're very graphic and should a child see that, it can cause some pretty traumatic experiences. I don't think they should be involving #childen in this:
The cut that she ended up sustaining would have been significantly reduced had she worn a helmet.
Also, WTF... the guy is going down on a proper longboard but his friend is only given a standard setup??
You all may disagree with me on this, but seriously, F!@#$K this girl's friend/partner/trainer/teacher who allowed her to get on the #skateboard withot even proper clothing, much less #pads and a check of the #bushings for the type of ride she was about to do. It's very clear from the twelve second mark that the amount of speed that board had picked up was beyond the rider's ability to control it and she took a very serious fall (which was completely avoidable): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CtJjAvCfU_U
I'm back baby! I have it working again and this time I'm going to properly upload it to #Gitlab so that the code isn't lost!
So last week my son found my old #Nintendo #DS #Lite, but it had a busted upper screen. I looked online and found the part and some relatively great instructions on #iFixit (https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Nintendo+DS+Lite+Upper+LCD+Replacement/4800). This was BY FAR the most daunting repair job that I've ever done. I was so excited when I turned it on and BOTH sceens turned on perfectly!
