Quote

It is shocking to think that many new walkers will only experience concrete or carpet beneath their feet, and will not learn to deal with uneven ground or sand until they are older. This will mean that when they go to the beach or run through snow or leaves, the sense of their own capacity, or lack of it, may pre-programme them towards undue risk taking or undue caution. Either way, it may affect the rate at which they gain physical competence or intellectual understanding of risk and consequence.
