Can a Children's Playground Really Be Too Safe?

By Yvette Vignando - 21st July 2011

 

Some researchers have suggested that the very safe playgrounds of today are depriving children of the opportunity to challenge themselves - they say a playground is a place where children can encounter and learn to overcome fears. Yvette Vignando debates this idea with psychologist Michael Carr Gregg on The Morning Show, Channel 7 - Michael bemoans the "woosification" of children.

For my full views on this issue and a discussion of the researchers' comments - please read and comment on my feature article  Playground Safety and Design - Taking the Heat Off Parents?
