3.0 out of 5 stars Danger kids-adults Danger,, 4 July 2011
By 
This review is from: 50 Dangerous Things (You Should Let Your Children Do) (Paperback)
This book is an interesting concept, especially to a generation of adults that were left to play outside for most of the day with little adult supervision. We tried most of these things. There are several exceptions... in looking through this before presenting it to anyone.

There should be more instruction in the warnings, for example in somersaulting, only a little sentence states about keeping your chin tucked in/down there is just a warning to start slowly and a statement how some schools do not allow this anymore, instead of teaching how to do it safely. The directions do say to tuck in your chin but not why.
Then there is the matter of battery licking, it makes me smile to think of the report that will be issued when the little one tells his teacher his parents or other adult has encouraged him to lick a battery to get a little shock......or that he was instructed to go out and play in a hailstorm or throw things from a moving car, dive in a dumpster or superglue their fingers together.

There is much that can be fun in here and can lead to an excellent adventure, but there is also much that is written in a questionable manner.
