To raise brave girls, encourage adventure

This is an am amazing talk from Caroline on the power of bravery in girls. She was the 15th woman in fire station of 1,500 men.
Caroline talks about the importance of risky play in young girls as is encouraged  in boys.
She notices girls are often taught to be timid and afraid of risk. This can play out in later life as women who don’t speak out, use defrance to be liked and lack of self confidence.
Risky play on the other hand is good for all kids. This develops valuable life skills of hazard assessment, delayed gratification , resilience,  confidence trust in  your decisions.
Now don’t get me wrong fear is a useful emotion, she notes. But not if it’s the automatic response to every situation.
