Life without risk is not life aat all.
I use to slide down the big slide when I was a kid in leather shoes crouched down after kids threw snow on the slide. Other kids laid down and we tried to see how many we could jump. The recess monitors just watched and shook their heads, knowing someone was going to get hurt but they knew how much fun we were having, and we all agreed it was a blast.
I broke my arm when I fell from the monkey bars in 4th grade too, and I don't remember my parents threatening to sue the school either, they just shrugged and and told me to be careful, next time it might be my neck. WTH is wrong with people now?
We are raising a entire generation of wusses.
