I think my world would have been much less appealing if all danger had been removed. The many potential benefits of activities such a climbing for this next generation are well documented and further proof is the vast amount of money our nation spends exposing our youth to it every year. While we would like to shield our kids from all harm, this is exactly the opposite of what they need in order to learn to self-manage as they become increasingly responsible. No one would propose putting children in a situation where they will definitely be hurt but teaching them to manage risk is extreamely important.
