Children taking risks? Harmful or helpful?

If you’ve come to this blog before, you know I follow a wonderful organization called ChildrenĀ and Nature Network. They post valuable information on the importance of getting children outside to experience the world. When I was 6, I remember walking to the town’s movie theater with my best friend Sue. We paid our money for the movie, bought some popcorn, and enjoyed a show. Could you imagine letting your six year old do that today? At what point does parental safety concern turn to micromanagement and control? This blog from C&NN brings to light the impact that having no free play time is having on our children.
