Sorry, you've pushed one of my buttons!  Reference your sentence on poles.
So, if she has no children it's all right not to worry about falling poles?
That 15 pound pole (mine is) can fall merrily away as long as there are no
_children_ in the tent.  No problem if it crushes the skull of her 54 year
old neighbor, 30 year old passer by, or simply cripples herself of her

Children are very dear members of society, but they are by no means the
_only_ ones.  Injuries can be devastating no matter what the individual's
age is.
