I hover over my kids at playgrounds. Not because they can't climb well enough - but rather because they are runners.
I hovered when they were younger ... Now it's more like I'm on playground duty - where I watch... But from a distance.
Reading through posts it seems it's assess each child and risk.
As my DD is a runner with no fear with her we are better off being there to catch when she falls ( as she has come off the edge of things before ), and as previously mentioned she's very independent and has opportunity to develop confidence and independence else where ( and on other equipment)

This is what happens when people don't read properly and attempt to cyber bully ( or what ever you want to call picking on someone else's life)
And before the keyboard warriors say I'm doing this I'm not, I just didn't know the social norm and have been provided reasonable facts and information as to why they do what they do ( still not comfortable with my own child as previously mentioned reasons). But I'm just going to let them do their thing at the park and I'll do mine
