Citing 98,000 trampoline-related injuries in the U.S. in 2009, the American Academy of Pediatrics published a statement in the journal Pediatrics that “strongly discouraged” children’s use of trampolines. What do you think?

  • “Sounds like these doctors just want more trampoline time for themselves.”

  • “I’m sorry, but the pure, unadulterated joy on my daughter’s face as she floats carelessly through the air is worth any ensuing snapped bones or paralysis.”

  • “Oh, come on. Most of those injuries weren’t caused by trampolines—they were caused by the ground.”
