Risk teaches children how to fail and try again, test their limits and boundaries, become resilient and acquire coping skills. It's an important part of play, yet children are allowed fewer and fewer opportunities to experience risk. These leaders in the movement to restore children's play speak out on the subject.

With Tim Gill, former director of Play England and author of No Fear: Growing Up in a Risk-Averse Society; Darell Hammond, Founder and CEO of KaBOOM!; Dr. Elizabeth Lange, pediatrician; and Janice O'Donnell, Director of the Providence Children's Museum.

Produced by the Alliance for Childhood and KaBOOM!
