“The Overprotected Kid”
“A preoccupation with safety has stripped childhood of independence, risk taking, and discovery—without making it safer. A new kind of playground points to a better solution.”
This is the title of a thought-provoking article by Hanna Rosin for The Atlantic magazine about risky play which is well worth a read.
The article also introduces a forthcoming film by Erin Davis called The Land. It is about a different kind of adventure playground. Above is a short film trailer.
