Andy Kirkpatrick - BBC Four Thought - Adventure PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 17 November 2014

Andy Kirkpatrick- acclaimed mountaineer, author and stand-up - challenges us to let our children be exposed to greater risk.

Andy argues that we shouldn't be wrapping up children in cotton wool, that children will naturally seek out risky, challenging, scary experiences and that by over protecting them we might just be encouraging them to seek out much more dangerous situations. Using a terrifying mountain climb he did with his young daughter as an example, Andy argues that if we're brave enough to allow our children to experienced managed risk they'll enter adulthood better prepared for life's challenges.
