Approaches to valuing risk in field safety

The idea that perhaps children are becoming closeted, protected from all risk is not new but it is great to see more conversation about the value of risk appearing in lots of places.  We have always believed that developing outdoor skills and getting people out into the field with appropriate and pragmatic field safety skills is not only a benefit in terms of the activities themselves but in terms of the wider benefits of giving people the ability to be self sufficient and manage risk for themselves.  We recently wrote about this in an earlier blog post about safety in the mountains but I really liked this article about kids and knives to give us a very down to earth and day to day example.
