Missing Image


Childhood is full of taking risks and reaching out. For a child, everything’s new. Making friends, talking to people outside the family, being sad, trying to draw a picture, climbing high, running fast. So is handling a hammer, a bicycle, and a sharp knife. Taking risks is how kids learn new things. Risk is not the problem. Risk is necessary to life. The key is to separate fear from risk and healthy risk from dangerous risk.
