Episode 32: Letting Kids Experience Risk

iTunes Soundcloud | Stitcher | RSS


Protecting our kids is the most basic of parenting jobs, but how much is too much? When we shield kids from anything that’s remotely risky, we erase a valuable learning opportunity. In Episode 32 of Edit Your Life, Christine and Asha discuss the importance of exposing kids to reasonable risk and danger, how “reasonable” differs from parent-to-parent (even in the same family), and how knowing– and trusting — ourselves is crucial as we navigate risky territory with our kids.
