My daughter has a great time on the slide at the park but she needs someone to catch her. Up till now every time I would touch her we would both get that wonderful static electric shock until I realized that if I touched her shoe first we didn't get zapped. I am not sure if it works for all shoes or just rubber-soled ones, but it is worth a try. It certainly made sliding more fun for both of us.
Anyone else have a tip for de-shocking the playground slide?
