Publisher's Summary

50 Risks to Take with Your Kids is an easy-to-use framework of challenges for children aged up to 10. You’ll find risks that build physical skills, social confidence and character development, plus some all-important parenting risks that will encourage you to think a little differently about raising children. This book is not about developmental KPIs, and it’s certainly not about judgement. It’s about teaching kids to recognise and assess risk before they enter those ‘risky’ teenage years and about readying them to take on life and all that it brings. And most importantly 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. For a book about risk-taking, it's hugely reassuring." (Annabel Crabb, journalist and author)

"Full of smart, evidence-based steps that parents (and grandparents!) can take to assist the emotional and cognitive development of their children." (Professor Ian Hickie Am, clinical psychiatry researcher)

"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)

Different narrator

Some good tips about managing risk and avoiding being a helicopter parent.
I would have liked to hear Daisy the author narrate the book. Or at least have an Australian narrator as I feel some phrases were misread.

Why the American narrator?

For a book filled with references to Australia, the American narrator feels weird and out of place.

In the spirit of reconciliation, Audible Australia acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community.
