Taking Risk

Can a child achieve optimum early childhood development without being given ample opportunities to take risks?  The ability to walk out from the other side of having taken a risk and succeeded is something that can build a child's confidence like little else can.

For months now, I have been aching to share with you all an absolutely AMAZING blog, written by Teacher Tom.  Today, I simply can not resist.  Yesterday, Teacher Tom wrote a wonderful post called Dangerous Hammers.  In this post, he refers to an article in The Times called Can a Playground Be Too Safe?.  

I'd love to hear your thoughts on his post and the article.  So give it a read, and speak up!
