Playground etiquette

(and the caveats you wish you could explain to your kids)
Illustration: Nate Bear

Rule #1
Share your toys.
(Just maybe not with the kid who can’t stop sneezing.)

Rule #2:
Wait your turn.
(Everyone wants a chance to go down the slide. That boy who’s been sitting at the bottom for 10 minutes and won’t budge? That’s where your feet come in.)

Rule # 3:
Use your inside voice.
(Okay, not literally. But remember your shrieks and squeals are as jarring out here as they are everywhere else.)
