This is round zero for the Youth Rights post, which is in development.

Here's a simple video, a ten minute talk, about 5 dangerous things to do with your kids. The kids will get hurt, certainly, but the guy tosses around the notion that no matter the situation, kids will find the most dangerous thing to do, and do it anyway. This is about coming to terms with dangerous things, and the power and learning that can come from such activities. It's great stuff, and it was fun to remember back to how old I was when I did each of these things.

The underlying theme of this piece is empowerment, and letting kids encounter dangerous things, develop an understanding and a mastery of those things, and come away as more fully developed people. It's great stuff
