On the other hand, some may say exposing risks to children can be very dangerous and should be removed but in my opinion, if they aren’t exposed to risks, they will not be prepared for risks later in life and will not know how to take control of the situation. Yes, children may get hurt a little whilst exploring these risks but they will then learn how to avoid this hazard and keep safe in the future.An example from my setting is telling a child not to touch the radiator because it will be hot. Even though they have clearly been warned not to, children will probably touch it experiencing themselves how hot it is and will learn not to do it again. By allowing children to risk take, they will feel they are being given a chance to explore things themselves instead of being told what to do all of the time. Also, children taking risks will help develop vital skills such as learning how to risk assess and problem solve on their own without any help and discovering risks and hazards and dangers. Trying out new things promotes a “I can do it” attitude which gives them a confidence boost that they are independent to observe risk themselves and also encourages determination and positive attitude towards learning.
