Age-Appropriate Risk Management

Travelling is a great way to develop resilience in childhood, both by what our children witness in other cultures, and by what we allow them to do. Ideas about what are ‘acceptable risks’ in childhood vary greatly around the world, ie: the majority of North American children no longer walk to school, while their Japanese counterparts take field trips by themselves. As world travellers, how do we support age-appropriate risk-taking for our children and teens? What can we learn from other cultures? What are our challenges in this regard? Join Carone as we share strategies to help make choices that are right for your family.
