Adding safety in the playground

June 8, 2017

Children have no sense of danger, and that’s one of the joys of being a child, you’re allowed to run free. Curtailing a child’s freedom is something parents have to do. Parents and teachers see danger well before a child ever could and whilst it’s important to gradually instill in children the ability to see and manage risks, it’s also good for them to play with wild abandon in a safe environment too.
