Abstract / Summary
'You just can't let them do anything anymore you know...' Why is risk important in children's play? How can we protect children's right to play and protect children at the same time? What is risk-benefit assessment and how can it help - rather than hinder - adults who work where children play? 'The Busker's Guide to Risk' explores why risk shouldn't be a four letter word when it comes to children's play. It starts from the right of children to play in a way that involves not only physical, but also social and emotional risk, and supports adults in developing a practical approach to balancing the need to protect children with the benefits of play.
