Description

When we take risks with our kids, we teach them to be better adults. 50 Risks to Take With Your Kids teaches parents and carers how to nurture resilience in their kids as they learn to take their own risks. It may sound counterintuitive to say that the longer you let kids be kids, the better they will 'adult' in the future, but it's true. The more children are allowed to play in the mud, create games and find their own solutions to problems, the more they will thrive later in life. Written to combat a growing generation of kids who have not been given the room to learn and grow in their own time, 50 Risks to Take With Your Kids gives parents and careers an easy-to-use framework with simple, practical challenges for children aged up to 10 years old. In this book, you'll find risks that develop physical and social skills, responsibility and character. You'll also find some all-important parenting risks that will encourage you to step outside your comfort zone and think alittle differently about raising kids. Peppered with Daisy Turnbull Brown's own experiences in parenting, teaching and wellbeing, this warm and funny book is not about developmental KPIs, and it's certainly not about judgement. It's about nurturing independence and resilience, teaching kids to recognize and assess risks themselves, and readying them to take on life and all that it brings. And it's about having fun and connecting as a family along the way.

Critic Reviews

“'An honest, funny and beautifully written account of parenting with all of its accursed uncertainties. If we were serious about absolute risk-aversion, we'd never have children at all, of course, but Turnbull is a wise guide to the risks that are truly worth it. For a book about risk-taking, it's hugely reassuring.' - Annabel Crabb, journalist and author 'This book is full of smart, evidence-based steps that parents (and grandparents!) can take to assist the emotional and cognitive development of their children. In the 21st century, there are few more important parental, family or social tasks. I will be actively recommending it to many of those parents who are struggling to find practical actions that they can take every day.' - Professor Ian Hickie AM, clinical psychiatry researcher 'We hear that 'bubble-wrapping' kids backfires, but how do we start popping the bubbles? When do we fully unwrap the kid? What if we prefer our kids safe and sound, and no risk seems worth it? That's when we pick up this book: a practical, sympathetic guide to giving kids back the chance to make some 'bad' moves and grow from them.' - Lenore Skenazy, founder of the free-range kids movement 'Resilience is a gift you give your child. It's the ability to bounce back when things get tough, it's coping skills, and it's the foundation for good mental health. With a sense of humour and a pragmatic approach, Daisy Turnbull has made teaching resilience easy and fun. 50 Risks captures everyday opportunities to develop and nurture resilience in your child. It is an essential parenting resource.' - Dr Fiona Martin MP, psychologist and federal member for Reid 'Daisy has written an important and timely book, with a down-to-earth, practical and humorous approach, combined with nods to science, psychology and Bluey .' - Dr Judith Locke, clinical psychologist”
