This is a peculiar video which has us torn on how to feel. It makes the case that children’s playgrounds today are so safe that they’re essentially boring and don’t help as much as they could with your kids’ personal development. They argue that there ought to be some risk built into every playground so that children can get to grips with challenges and come to terms with the idea that there are consequences for getting things wrong.
What did you think? It’s a tricky question isn’t it? We’d love to hear your thoughts on this as we think it’s important.
