Are your kids allowed to play with the garden hose? - Page 5

Yeah, I let mine as long as they aren't tormenting eachother with it or running it for hours on end.

I'm not sure if this applies in other areas of the country, but any water that I use will be diverted from what is available to endangered native fish in our local streams. This should make me far more cautious with how I use water, but I still believe in water play. It's become more of an issue this summer, with two heat waves and a ridiculous new "clean water" regulation that closed the city's chlorinated, fresh-filled-daily wading pools.
