There are some kinds of free standing child hammocks built especially for sitting in. These child hammocks are not built for sleeping or napping, but they are perfect for gentle rocking. A child should be told that while a hammock swing rocks a bit like the playground version, it is not meant for fast or high swinging. The same goes for a "grown-up" version. Your kids may be tempted to play on the hammock swing like they do on the playground-this is one of the reasons it's best to make hammock time a parent-child togetherness activity instead of an unsupervised one.
