Too Safe For Their Own Good?

  • Sale
  • £14

Adults often try to create a risk-free environment, but this can reduce children's opportunities to manage their own risk, making it difficult for them to learn how to judge new situations. In this practical guide, Jennie Lindon shows how adults can share their own skills with young children and promote understanding of safety within an interesting learning environment.

The book looks at:

  • putting risk into perspective
  • how children learn to take care of themselves
  • how to support children after accidents and avoiding preventable accidents
  • working in partnership with parents.

'A very welcome second edition of a book that has been enormously popular since it was first published over 10 years ago...'
