Raising Resilient Children - With a Little Help from Nature
August 18, 2021
Trouble knocked at the door, but hearing laughter, hurried away.
-Benjamin Franklin
In his IPPY award winning book, Adventures in Risky Play, author Rusty Keeler helps educators support beneficial risky play in a way that works for each individual’s comfort level. He helps them see that appropriate risks are not dangerous. What feels risky and thrilling to a young child can (and must) also feel safe to the adult.

Richard Louv, author of Our Wild Calling and Last Child in the Woods, has this to say:

“Rusty Keeler’s terrific book will inspire parents and caregivers to raise courageous, resilient children and young adults—with a little help from nature.”

Adventures in Risky Play: What is Your Yes? goes to the heart of risk-taking and children. As educators working with young children, we all have boundaries and feelings around what risky play is allowed. Rusty Keeler invites us to examine the cage of boundaries that we have created for ourselves and our children. He challenges us to rattle our cage and discover where the lines are movable. In our role as educators and caretakers, when we allow children to play and confront risk on their own terms, we see them develop, hold their locus of control and make choices on how to navigate the bumpy terrain of a situation. What better teaching tool for life is there?
