Risk and Adventure In Early Years Outdoor Play | Quote 02918

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.
