My kids are 6 and 4.  I am looking at a good quality trampoline as I've heard too many stories of tramps breaking after a year or two.

Is a 10ft tramp big enough to see kids into their teens (assuming of course they are still interested?)

We have the room for a 12ft, but its another $265!

That said I don't want to pay good money for a tramp that turns out to be well used but too small.

Any thoughts?

We have this Springfree trampoline and it will most definitely see DS until he is a teen (he is 5 in Feb).

We have a 10ft and I think it is a perfect size. I get on there and bounce and there is plenty of room for an adult. I actually bought mine from ebay an it is holding up well after 4 years of use. The jumping mat and poles are still in perfect condition. I just replace the blue pads and net every couple of years, because they wear out from exposure to sunlight - this happens to all trampolines regardless of brand, and they are relatively cheap to replace.

    How dogs could make children better readers

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
