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.
