Adults often try to create a risk-free environment for children, but this can reduce their opportunities to manage their own risk, making it difficult for them to learn how to judge new situations. This practical guide shows how adults can share their own skills with young children and promote understanding of safety within an interesting learning environment.The first edition made a huge contribution to the debate around children and risk. Over ten years later, this new edition thoroughly re-examines the issues of the first edition and assesses recent developments such as risk-benefit analysis and the importance of outdoor experiences.Written for the full range of practitioners involved with children, it will support them to take the middle path of offering enough challenge to benefit children, while avoiding the extremes of over-protection or careless practice.

If you behaved in a very responsible and reliable manner when you were a child and if, now that you are an adult, you often feel childlike and vulnerable in stressful situations, you are in all likelihood an adult child. If you have a constant need to be better - to improve yourself, to be more interesting, more attractive, nicer - you are probably an adult child. If you feel responsible for everything and everyone, you are almost certainly an adult child. Having a childhood that is unpredictable or inconsistent in any way often results in a range of characteristics and limiting beliefs which include a need to be perfect, an inability to trust others, and a horror of asking for help. It doesn't really matter what was going on in your family, or why you felt like you needed to be a grown up when you were a child. What matters is that you did. This book will take you on a journey of self-discovery, and provide you with powerful exercises and self-coaching tools that will guide you through a process of healing. Life Lessons for the Adult Child will bring you relief from the confusion and anxiety that may have been your constant companions, and it will guide you to a place of understanding and acceptance of yourself. Reading this book and completing the exercises will help you to change - not who you are but how you are.
