No Fear: Growing up in a risk averse society

The No Fear report
“We all want to keep children safe – but are we going the right way about it? By over protecting children we stop them developing the skills and resilience they need to protect themselves – while those working with children can become so anxious about risk prevention they lose confidence in their own good judgement”

  1. That sounds like a book in Canada called “Too Safe for their Own Good” by Michael Ungar, looking at risk-taking and responsibility-seeking in teens and arguing similar points, I think.

  2. Simon,
    Good to hear from you and thanks for the pointer to “Too Safe ….”. (Talking of books, “ZOOM!” is still a very popular read in our household)
