Small risks sooner better than big ones later

Quote of the day:

“It’s better to learn about risk and consequences and controlling your emotion when you are 8 and up a tree, than when you are 18 behind the wheel of a Subaru, getting chased by the cops.”    Professor Grant Schofield.

He was commenting on the Milo State of the Play survey which shows that children have less playtime than their parents and grandparents did.

P.S. Thomas Lumley critiques reports on the survey in Run Along and Play at Stats Chat.
