This is one of my quandaries: Do I let my 5-year-old jump from this height like she wants or fight her about it? I don’t want to be overprotective but I am pretty sure she could twist or break an ankle landing, especially doing it in flip flops! It’s about 5 feet, 6 inches. I would have no problem at all with my 9-year-old making that jump. However, the 5-year-old seems too short to do it. What do you think?
