Redefining the way children play

The article linked to below and the interview included below have both been published recently in the UK.  Due to their proximity in topic an release dates, as well as increasing efforts I've witnessed on the behalf of Parkour UK and Parkour Generations, hopefully this is the start of a reexamination of the way that we bring up children in today's society.  Parkour seems to be the obvious choice as a medium to teach kids how to explore and navigate their world safely and thoroughly, especially since most children left to their own devices often develop their own sort of parkour-esque movement...

Article: "Experts agree children will not learn about risk if they are wrapped in cotton wool"

Interview: "Natural Childhood"
