Beschreibungen

<p>Young children have a limited understanding of the risks surrounding them: they fall over, bang their heads, scrape their knees and worse. Parents and practitioners can try to create a risk-free environment, but this can reduce children's chances to to learn about risk and how to judge new situations.</p>
<p>This bestselling guide shows how adults can share their own skills with young children to promote understanding of safety in a stimulating way. It covers key areas such as: putting risk into perspective; how children learn to take care of themselves; supporting children after accidents and avoiding preventable accidents; and working in partnership with parents. This second edition has been fully updated to reflect current practice, featuring new material on risk-benefit analysis and the importance of outdoor experiences.</p>
<p>Too Safe for Their Own Good? will support any practitioner working with children under the age of 8 with the guidance they need to offer enough challenge to benefit children, and to avoid over-protection or careless practice.</p>
The second edition of this bestselling guide shows how parents and practitioners can offer children adventure and challenge without risking their safety.
