One of my main roles as a parent is safety. Our children come to us completely dependent on us for all of their basic needs. We baby proof our homes, check the temperature of the bath water, cut food into the tiniest of pieces. Our danger monitor goes on high alert and we are scanning for safety. It’s natural to want to keep our children from harm. So why do kids need to take risks? Too much “risk management” and our kids can miss out on emotional and physical learning.
