Mixed message for kids

I have always felt ill at ease with the signs warning of "Children at Play". In most cases, it gets the point across to motorists, but I've always feared that it might promote play in the area by children. After researching it online, I find that a number of jurisidictions across the US are questioning whether the sign should be redesigned or replaced entirely.

IN looking at your postings, I am seeing some verbiage that inspires an emotional response, but I am not seeing any solid use of imagery or visual communication. In all of these images (both the symbolic posting and the emotional postings), if you take away the words, you have a blank space with an indifferent color.

How do any of the images tie into our readings and our discussions?
