Gever Tulley: 5 dangerous things you should let your kids do

Another video from TED on learning…

Gever Tulley is the founder of The Tinkering School. The Tinkering School has been featured in Make Magazine and associated with the global Maker Faire community.

Japan has its own Make: Japan community.

Gever Tulley published his book, 50 Dangerous Things (You Should Let Your Children Do), in April 2011. He has also a Website on the book and subject.

My two favorites:
Number 28 – Climb a Tree
Number 45 – Play with Fire.

Most people do not recognize the difference between dangers and hazards. In mistaking the two, we actually reduce safety, because children become unprepared to deal with important things in life that should be used with caution, gained through real experiences.

Nuff said – watch the video!
