Why Kids Need Risky Play (and how to feel safe encouraging it!)


Why Kids Need Risky Play (and how to feel safe encouraging it!)

The Parenting Junkie illustrates the importance of risky play. In this video you’ll learn why you need to let kids take risks and the benefits of risk taking in early childhood. The importance of risky play and adventurous play cannot be understated. Kids need to have risk in play in order to develop properly. This can seem daunting so you’ll also learn how to encourage risky play and still feel safe. In her book Balanced and Barefoot, Angela Hanscom points out the detriments this lack of play causes for our children. Luckily enough research has been done that there are more risky playgrounds being built for children such as the adventure playgrounds you’ll see footage of in this video. In addition to learning the benefits of risky play, you’ll learn the 6 categories of risky play by Peter Gray author of Free to Learn. After watching this you’ll feel much more comfortable allowing your children the unstructured play and risky play they need.

#2 – Keep Your Own Feelings in Check [9:38]
#3 – Seek Opportunities for Risky Play [10:29]

The Minimalist Newborn (The Essentials You DON’T Need)


THE MINIMALIST NEWBORN (THE ESSENTIALS YOU DON’T NEED)

The Parenting Junkie has embraced the minimalist newborn. What are minimalist newborn essentials, you may ask. Let’s consider the minimalist newborn wardrobe and minimalist newborn must haves. Does a minimalist newborn diaper bag necessary? What does a minimalist newborn clothes selection look like? This video is all about Avital’s take on the minimalist newborn list and the minimalist newborn baby essentials might not be so essential after all. Be sure to download the Minimalist Baby Essentials List in the link below for your minimalist baby. The great thing about minimalist baby essentials is how it spills over and naturally creates a minimalist baby nursery. This is not a minimalist baby haul today – so be prepared to be mind blown at the things you thought you needed, but perhaps DON’T need.
