preventing dumb injuries

I know this sounds like heresy — but are minor injuries part of the learning process of children?

If we keep kids completely cocooned in protective bubbles, will they appreciate greater potential risk?

Do we need to shut down playgrounds?


Consider the athletes you know. Some have had “dumb injuries”. Some have never had a major injury.


What are the least injured athletes doing right?
