Why Fifty Dangerous Things? There are many "dangerous" things that are interesting, eye-opening, enlightening or just plain fun! And while there are aspects of danger in virtually everything we do, the trick is to learn how mastery actually minimizes danger. Walking is dangerous when we start as babies, but we persevere and it becomes safe. Next we learn to negotiate stairs. Why stop there? Why not practice and become proficient at walking on the roof or walking on a tightrope? These are just a few of the Fifty Dangerous Things that we invite you to try.

50 Dangerous Things (You Should Let Your Children Do)

 By Gever Tulley and Julie Speigler


A little danger can bring a lot of learningãand inspiration. Gever Tulley's 50 Dangerous Things (You Should Let Your Children Do) shows us that the risks of doing some activities are minimal when guided by a caring and watchful adult, while missing out on the activity might do even greater harm to budding personalities. From licking a battery, mastering a somersault, and driving a nail (or a car), all the way to melting glass and sleeping in the wild, each exercise has a reward. By encouraging actions that can give your youngster a sense of accomplishment, a moment of inspiration, or just a great little thrill, this guidebook believes that too much coddling can stunt a young personês sense of self and self-exploration. Paperback, 144 pages.
