Last year, I was honored to be part of TEDMED 2014 in Washington DC. I was in the thick of writing the risk book--and got to share what I learned about why risky play is important not just for kids, but adults, too.

Alas, I can't seem to figure out how to embed the video in the post. But you can click here to see Eliminating Penalties for Playing Out of Bounds. Check it out and let me know what... Read more of this blog post »

Dirty Minds by Kayt Sukel
