Summary
In this book, Stephen Smith shows how parents and educators can become aware of the positive value of risk in children's lives and how they can be challenged to take risks that are worth their while. This text is a "how so" much more than a "how to" book. It shows by evocative example and provocative questions how adults can help children mature with confidence and a strong sense of physical competence. The analysis shows the place, silence, atmosphere, challenge, encounter, practice, and possibility of risk taking. It consistently and conscientiously draws the reader's attention to a careful, solicitous manner of being with children
