Being a parent is a tough job. From when our children are infants until they are teenagers, there are countless challenges we face daily. However, the pros of raising a family far outweigh the cons. One of the joys of parenthood is watching your child’s face light up when doing something fun together. Whether it’s going bowling together or just out for coffee, joyful moments abound throughout your child’s upbringing, and there are many great ways to spend quality time with your child safely.
A great example of a day out with the kids would be going to the local indoor funplex. Generally these places feature arcades, laser tag, and the central attraction: an indoor playground. Who can forget sliding right into a pool of colorful balls and throwing them playfully at one another. There are many ways our children can have fun, but as every parent will tell you, the most important thing is safety. People very often don’t realize how much rubber bond affects playground safety. In one nationwide survey, playgrounds with rubber bond were shown to have 25% less accidental injuries than their counterparts. Knowing about rubber bond protection before visiting a local indoor playground sounds like a laughable and mundane subject, until you see a child with a broken arm or leg. We must take action now before accidents happen, and urge all indoor playgrounds that rubber bond flooring is a necessity; not a luxury. Don’t wait until it’s your child.
Another place very far removed from indoor playgrounds, yet a source of fun for many teens, is the shooting range. When following all safety precautions a shooting range can provide many educational and life lessons. Rubber flooring is key in providing shooting range safety. When one walks into a shooting range with rubber bond, the first thing they notice is the noise level, or lack thereof. Because the bullets hit the rubber, the noise level is significantly lower. You can actually carry out a normal conversation, contrary to most shooting ranges. More importantly, in some rare cases bullets have ricocheted off the concrete walls and caused severe injuries. Rubber bond prevents this hazard.
Of equal importance is the fact that rubber bond is made up of 100% recycled rubber, allowing you to shoot away with a clear conscience, knowing as you fire away, attempting to hit the bulls’ eye, that you are helping this world become a better place by protecting the environment we live in. Of course, don’t forget to impart this important lesson to your soon-to-be adults.
Having a great day out with your kids can be spent teaching them important lessons in life while helping make this world a better place for them in the years to come.
