  Children and Risk Wednesday 7 August 2002  
Do we harm our children by not placing them at risk? To mark National Playday we ask if the playground or the street is the best place to let children play.

Also whether exposure to the dangers of the world at an early age can help children navigate through more serious situations later in life.
Researcher into playground safety, David Bull and Elizabeth Hartley-Brewer, author of Positive Parenting join Sheila to discuss the issues.
