I have two kids and I would never willingly allow them to jump off a roof into a pool. Not only is that dangerous, and a stupid thing to 'let' your kid do. The first time I found out it happened, I'd put an end to it asap. When the kid broke his neck from a high dive into a 3 ft pool, who do you think would get the blame?Not only that, but can you imagine the guilt the parent would have to live with? My mother wouldn't have allowed that either.
I agree that kids need to get out more and be kids, riding bikes, playing outside, etc, but they don't need to do dangerous things to be a kid. I get your point, but using jumping off a roof into a pool is a bad example.
Kids can be kids, but parents still need to watch out for them and ensure their safety.

Did you ever take risks? if not, you must still be a child deep down inside
No offense, just truth. take it or leave it.
