The importance of risk taking for children

We spoke to an experienced forest school leader about outdoor learning and the importance of taking risks for children.

“If you can introduce children to risk in a healthy setting when they are younger, you’ll find that they are more inclined to try healthier risks as they get older… You don’t want your child to be scared… too scared to speak in a situation.

It all starts in your childhood. It all starts with exposure.

Risk is important for friendships…it gels people together.”
